Vient de paraître The Sun King’s Atlantic. Drugs, Demons and Dyestuffs in the Atlantic World, 1640 - 1730 de Jutta Wimmler chez Brill, "The Atlantic World" (vol. 33), 2017, XIV-230 p. ISBN : 9789004336070 Prix : 80 € (existe aussi en version électronique).

"In The Sun King’s Atlantic, Jutta Wimmler reveals the many surprising ways in which the Atlantic world channeled cultural developments during the age of the Sun King. Although hardly visible for contemporaries at the time, Africa and America were omnipresent throughout early modern France : in the textile industry, pharmaceutics, medicine, scientific methods, religious discourse, and court theatre. The book moves beyond typical plantation crops and the slave trade to illustrate how a focus on Europe challenges us to rethink the place of Africa in the early modern world."



Jutta Wimmler, Ph.D. (2011), University of Graz (Austria), is a researcher and lecturer at the European University Viadrina, Germany. She has published several articles about Africa’s impact on Europe, most recently in the Journal of Religion in Africa.
