Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Atlantic Biographies: Individuals and Peoples in the Atlantic World presents the table of contents and the preface. The goal of Atlantic history and its practitioners is to consider the past from a perspective bound less by traditional fields of study, national borders, and staid pedagogy that inhibits new ways of thinking and interpreting. Atlantic history still offers seemingly limitless opportunities for scholars to approach the past in fresh and exciting ways. Each chapter of the book focuses on individuals who saw the Atlantic as their conduit to gaining wealth, whether financial, intellectual or religious.
