Designed to encourage critical thinking about history, the Major Problems Series introduces students to both primary sources and analytical essays on important topics in US history. The Atlantic Ocean and the interactions between the continents that make up the Atlantic rim, North America, South America, Africa, and Europe, have all figured largely into the history of both the United States and the world. Major Problems in Atlantic History covers the history and evolution of this area, with special attention to such topics as the origins of the Atlantic world, migrations throughout the Atlantic world, European interactions, Atlantic economies, slavery, and independence.
