Complete description

The wars of the period 1770--1830, including the North and South American wars of independence and the revolutionary and Napoleonic wars, are frequently considered to be the first wars fought by all combatants as 'national wars'. Yet they touched every continent of the globe. New ideas about citizenship, patriotism and national belonging circulated far beyond Europe and North America, as some European empires were fatally weakened and others greatly extended their power. This volume explores the impact of revolution and war in slave and free societies including southern India, the Caribbean, South America, and southern Africa. Articles discuss how experience of war helped to shape the individual and collective identities of men and women, slaves and soldiers, colonial rulers and indigenous peoples. Particular attention is paid to the ways in which men and women imagined themselves and their world, with reference to the complexities of gender, class, religion, race, ethnicity and nation.
