Abstract

Over the last decades the term 'Age of Revolution' has become more and more frequent among western scholars. Most of the classic works on this time period have looked at the historical developments occurred in the Atlantic from a European or North American perspective. R. R. Palmer and Eric Hobsbawn, to mention but a couple of examples, focused mostly on events such as the French and the American revolutions, paying little attention – if any – to other crucial episodes such as the independence of Hispanic America and, most conspicuously, the Haitian Revolution.
