Entrepot of Revolutions: Saint-Domingue, Commercial Sovereignty, and the French-American Alliance
Manuel Covo (Thom Fellow, 2018-19)

Much less recognized than the spread of democratic ideals was the period's growing traffic of goods, capital, and people across imperial borders and reforming states' attempts to control this mobility.
