"A fresh and illuminating framework for understanding our past and imagining our future. Powerfully argued and engagingly written, Patrick Griffin's timely account of revolutionary regime change and reaction shows how a world of empires became our world of nation-states."--Peter S. Onuf, coauthor of Most Blessed of the Patriarchs

"When we speak of an age of revolution, what do we mean? In this synoptic, compelling book, Patrick Griffin asks the difficult questions and invites readers to reconsider the answers."--Eliga Gould, author of Among the Powers of the Earth

"The Age of Atlantic Revolution is a bold, sweeping Atlantic history connecting the political concepts that defined a revolutionary era. Its aim is audacious, as are its comparisons across continents. Patrick Griffin draws on wide-ranging research and a career's worth of knowledge to pull off this history that will challenge students and scholars alike."--Janet Polasky, author of Asylum between Nations

"In his compelling new book, Patrick Griffin narrates the Age of Revolution(s) through the lens of entanglements, disconnections, and comparisons. The result is an innovative interpretation of these tumultuous events."--Megan Maruschke, Universität Leipzig
