The "Age of Revolutions 1760-1820" has long been seen as pivotal in the making of the modern world. Like contemporaries, historians have long reflected on the intellectual and cultural similarities and differences between revolutions in the France and the Americas and upheavals in Britain, Ireland and elsewhere. The concept of the "Atlantic" or "democratic" revolution – first articulated in the 1950s by Jacques Godechot and R.R. Palmer and long seen as sterile because of its perceived reflection of Cold War politics – has been revivified by recent histories of the republic of letters, of women's cultures, and above all of slavery and revolt, from our own perspective of the globalizing world of the twenty-first century.
