Abstract

journal of world history, december 2006 José Capalo examines Brazil's economic and political ties with Mozambique; this too was influenced by and articulated through the experiences of the slave trade (pp. 243­257). Oftentimes, the contributions in an edited collection such as this one suffer from uneven quality. This is not the case with Africa and the Americas. Although each essay could stand alone and provide interesting supplemental readings, educators will find the whole collection to be an excellent addition to their required and recommended readings lists. The essays in this volume are well suited for emerging scholars in the field of Atlantic world history who are looking for a range of methodologies and theories to apply to the study of the interconnections between the Americas and Africa. The most useful guide in this collection is the last essay, titled "The Conundrum of Culture in Atlantic History," written by Colleen Kriger. In this essay, Kriger provides sage advice for those wishing to apply what they have learned from Africa and the Americas to their own research projects: "[t]o more fully integrate Africa into New World studies, three things will prove helpful: disaggregating culture in Africa; analyzing it in frameworks
