2018, announced that it was ‘decolonising’ itself, it

with particular force and clarity

Each oceanic zone has distinctive histories. Much of the recent scholarship of Atlantichistory has established how the Atlantic seaboard states had no
competitors in oceanic space in the Western hemisphere. The situation diverged
completely from the seas ringing the Indian Ocean and the states that patrolled
them. In their land invasion of the Americas, by contrast, they confronted
Amerindian peoples and civilisations. In time, they competed

together their deeply intertwined history. This has been, in no small measure,

such approaches, this chapter paints an overarching picture of the rise and
fall of the Hispanic Monarchy on both sides of the Atlantic. By looking at
