"Ernesto Bassi breaks new ground by revealing alternative, unexplored, and failed political projects during the so-called Age of Revolutions, an era usually associated with anticolonial wars and the creation of modern nation-states. Carefully reconstructing circuits of trade and communication, Bassi subverts the very idea of regional history, making An Aqueous Territory appealing not just to Latin American and Caribbean historians, but to all those interested in transnational, global, and imperial history as well." — David Sartorius, author of, Ever Faithful: Race, Loyalty, and the Ends of Empire in Spanish Cuba
"With captivating biographies of maritime figures and impressive empirical documentation An Aqueous Territory is an innovative, creative, and pioneering book that will find wide audiences among scholars of Caribbean, Atlantic, and Latin American history." — Matt D. Childs, author of, The 1812 Aponte Rebellion in Cuba and the Struggle against Atlantic Slavery
