Review

Jerry Adelman's sweeping study of the political economics of the Spanish and Portuguese South Atlantic world on the eve of independence, from 1780 to 1822, is a work that is sure to be influential. Using archival sources from at least six countries, as well as the latest secondary literature, the book can be described as a complex, sophisticated, and magisterial merging of narrative and theory on state, nation, economics, institutions, and sovereignty. -- Timothy E. Anna "International History Review"


This outstanding work analyzes sovereignty and its relationship to revolution as it affected the peoples of Brazil and Spain's Atlantic colonies of South America.... Based on extensive secondary literature and archival and printed primary sources, this will be an immediate classic. -- Choice

"Sovereignty and Revolution" has major implications for scholarship on imperial crisis and national independence in the Iberian world. It also calls the reader's attention to the strengths and weaknesses of Atlantic history.--Christopher Schmjdt-Nowara "Journal of Modern History "

This is one of the few monographs in Latin American history, and the only one on the independence process that deals with both Spanish America and Brazil. Adelman characterizes each Iberian empire as a cohesive unit, as an integrated system that was both functional and more productive than the previous literature acknowledges. . . . A complex, sophisticated, and magisterial merging of narrative theory on state, nation, economies, institutions, and sovereignty. [A] very substantial achievement.--Timothy E. Anna "International History Review "

Adelman . . . provides a good synthesis of how British, French and Iberian powers' policies and changing relations influenced transatlantic trade and the shape and speed of independence in Spanish and Luso-Brazilian South America.--Jordana Dym "European History Quarterly "

From the Inside Flap

"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
