I am an early-modern historian (17th-18th century), teaching classes on Revolutionary America, Atlantic piracy, and military history. My ﬁrst book (Conquering the American Wilderness: The Triumph of European Warfare in the Colonial Northeast) is a study of English and American military culture. Addressing narratives of Americanization and Anglicization, it highlights cultural continuity between the Old World and the New. This theme of transatlantic cultural cohesion also informs my second book (The Ocean is a Wilderness: Atlantic Piracy and the Limits of State Authority), and my latest book, on the origins, nature, and ends of the American Revolution (The Colonists' American Revolution: Preserving English Liberty). Although a specialist in early-modern history, my first love was and still is Roman history. [See guychet.com]
