This unit focuses on two related processes of critical importance for both the Atlantic world and the modern world more generally: the Atlantic Revolutions that occurred between 1775 and 1825, and the force of modern nationalism to which these revolutions gave rise.
Chapter 25 takes you through the American, French, Haitian, and Latin American revolutions that marked this period, as well as some of the ideas and ideals; like antislavery and women’s rights; that these revolutions inspired. As you read, think carefully about the many ways in which the Atlantic Revolutions were linked. Why, for example, did they all occur in such a relatively short span of time? Did some revolutions make others possible? If so, how?
Chapter 25 also introduces you to the historical roots of nationalism. Here, you will want to consider the precise definition of nationalism, why it became so important during and after the Atlantic Revolutions, and some of its consequences. How, for example, was nationalism expressed in Italian and German unification?
