The American Revolution took place within a larger period known today as the “Age of Revolutions.”
What does the Revolution look like when we place it within this larger context? Did it really help foment the many other failed and successful revolutions that took place during the period?
Over the next two episodes of the Doing History: To the Revolution series
, we’ll explore answers to these questions by taking a closer look at how the American Revolution fit within the larger context of the Age of Revolutions.
The first part of our exploration will take us into the Caribbean. Laurent Dubois
, a professor of history at Duke University and the author of four books about slavery and revolution in the French Caribbean, will serve as our guide.
