Over at The Browser, Bailyn introduces us to Atlantic History by recommending five books on the subject. He picks two of his own books, but we will give him a pass since he is, after all, Bernard Bailyn.

Jill Elliott, Empires of the Atlantic World: Britain and Spain in America, 1492-1830.

David Armitage and Michael Braddick, ed., The British Atlantic World: 1500-1800.
