the histories of most of the geographical regions of the early modern Atlantic world that treat each European state with its nascent empire as a separate entity. The history of commerce is less easily contained within a territory. The concept of ‘circum-Atlantichistory attempts to escape territorial boundaries; the idea is that the history of the Atlantic is a transnational one that transcends the European nation states and also draws Asian economies into an expanding Atlantic network. 10 The Adventurers for Irish land belonged to this circum-Atlantic world

The plantation of Ulster: ideas and ideologies
Éamonn Ó Ciardha and Micheál Ó Siochrú

anti-Europeanism. One of the most vocal critics, Nicholas Canny, believes the new historiography implies an integrity for ‘these islands . . . probably in excess of any that ever existed’, exaggerating unity at the expense of diversity and detracting from European and colonial comparatives. 20 In the preface to Making Ireland British Canny writes that his aim is to place Ireland in the history of British overseas expansion, an exercise in colonial or ‘Atlantichistory. He concludes, however, with a caustic swipe in the direction of the New British History

"On the political passions in Europe and America and their implications for Transatlantic History"
Charles S. Maier

various ways in which ideas, commodities, and people moved between and around the broader Atlantic world. This scholarship, by tracing this movement back and forth across the Atlantic in the early modern period, has demonstrated the interconnectedness of European colonising states and Indigenous and African societies. 6 A criticism levelled at Atlantic history has been its tendency to focus on the core, and most especially nation states, rather than on peripheries. 7 In contrast, borderlands scholarship has emphasised the importance of peripheries to our understanding

, it has been suggested that the dissemination and exchange of botanical and medical information between cultures was one of the characteristics of Early Modern globalisation. 4 The rise of Atlantic history over recent decades, although its intellectual lineage is arguably to be traced at least as far back as the post-war period and the Cold War, has enabled new readings of intersecting histories. Applied as a framework of analysis to topics as diverse as the history of sexualities, the family and indigenous Americans
