about this item

Transatlantic trade has played a key role in shaping the modern world yet to date little has been written on its importance in the development of the global economic and political relations. Only Trade Works provides the first history of transatlantic trade. The author charts the development of transatlantic trade from its beginnings in seventeenth century to the present day. Combining the impact of key figures who drove transatlantic trade forward, with the important role of the trading cities in Europe and North America that created transatlantic trade in the first place, Sanford Henry goes on to show how the history of transatlantic trade and its later developments in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries deliver an important political message to an increasingly volatile world: that transatlantic trade-and its latest manifestation in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)-is a clear example of how commerce trumps conflict as a means of resolving the issues facing the modern world.
