The Atlantic in World History tells the story of the emergence of an integrated Atlantic world after 1492 and the way lives in all four continents were transformed. Novel products, especially foods, made lives better, but intensive labor systems, especially slavery, ruined many lives. Plantation agriculture and intensified trade fed industrial processes and led to modern economic and political regimes.
