Sovereignty and Revolution in the Iberian Atlantic
Jeremy Adelman

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Adelman's book is based on his mastery of the extensive secondary literature on the political economy of the empires of Spain and Portugal and his own research in the archives of both empires. This is Atlantic history as it should be written, with an eye to small detail and an ability to reconstruct the broad sweep of history over a vast area."--Stuart Schwartz, Yale University

"A splendid book. Jeremy Adelman's stimulating and important work should shake up the study of nationalism, while contributing to a recent body of scholarship that emphasizes the long-lasting importance of empire."--Frederick Cooper, New York University, author of Colonialism in Question

"Jeremy Adelman has written a book of impressive architecture, offering a broadly researched and sophisticated interpretation of the independence era in Spanish South America and Brazil. Adelman's innovative interpretation is likely to spark a lively debate on ways of understanding the independence process in Latin America."--Frank Safford, Northwestern University
