In doing so, it breaks down institutional boundaries between American and British literature in this early period, as well as between history and literature. Individual essays address the ways in which categories of race - black brown, red and white, African American and Afro Caribbean, Spanish and Jewish, English and Celtic, native American and Northern European, creole and mestizo were constructed or adapted by early modern writers. The collection brings together a collection of historians and literary critics specializing in early modern Britain and early America.
