Empires of the Atlantic World is a fascinating comparative study that identifies the differences and similarities of the Spanish and British Empires in America. John H. Elliot uses the story of the two colonizations of America to understand the impact of colonialism and imperialism in America in a magisterial comparative history. It’s insightful and it avoids oversimplification and nationalistic ideas, so I think it will be very revealing for many English-speakers and I would highly recommend this exciting account.
