"An impressively constructed and stylistically presented account of the British Greater Caribbean, Hubs of Empire is historically sound and intellectually appealing. Matthew Mulcahy demonstrates great skill and command of the historical period and contexts."

"Overall this is a fine book: balanced, comprehensive, and well written... The use of texts like Hubs of Empire is critical to the recuperation of this historical experience shared alike by what became the United States and its Caribbean neighbors in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries."

"Mulcahy's theoretical approach is sure to foster much debate in both the classroom and the wider academy... Recommended."
