Nuala Zahedieh - Selected Publications#

1) The Capital and the Colonies: London & the Atlantic Economy, 1660-1700 (Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2010); this in one of the very few key books on the early modern English economy in its international framework. It addresses trade and slavery, consumption and industrial growth, and the making of a world city. It is a very finely written book, presenting deep research and complex arguments clearly and briefly. This might be a quality that we aspire to, but few reach in their historical writing. The book has been reviewed extensively and always positively in the leading learned journals; by key figures. Zahedieh’s book is a major contribution to the field, and established a significant international reputation for the candidate.

2) ‘Defying Mercantilism: Illicit Trade, Trust, and the Jamaican Sephardim, 1660-1730’, The Historical Journal (2018). This, in one of Britain’s highest ranked journals, is still forthcoming: I am listing it because I am on the board of the HJ and can testify to the excellence and originality of this piece which touches on one subject she will be treating of in the major study she is currently bringing to completion.
