Synopsis

A Confluence of Transatlantic Networks is a study in Atlantic world history that examines the qualitative nature of capitalism's processes through the lens of social networks. The book demonstrates how portions of interconnected trust-based kinship, business, and ideational transatlantic networks evolved over roughly a century and a half and eventually converged to engender, promote, and facilitate the migration of southern elites to Brazil in the post - Civil War era. Placing that migration in the context of the Atlantic world sharpens our understanding of the transborder dynamic of such mainstream nineteenth-century historical currents as international commerce, liberalism, Protestantism, and Freemasonry. The manifestation of these transatlantic forces as found in Brazil at midcentury provided disaffected Confederates with a propitious environment in which to try to re-create a cherished lifestyle."" Atlantic Crossings"" has been founded as a series receptive to innovative work of original scholarship on the transnational intersections of society, commerce, intellectual exchange, and human movements across and within the Atlantic world, from the end of the seventeenth century to the outbreak of world war at the beginnings of the twentieth century.
