Archipelago of Justice

Yale University Press

The Atlantic and Indian Oceans, though distinctive, were never separate spheres of French imperial activity. Instead, these spaces formed a coherent whole as they were traversed and connected by the constant movement of French subjects and their correspondence. These movements were often channeled through the global network of legal entrepôts, especially the conseils supérieurs.

Keywords:   French history, francophone law, French studies, eighteenth century studies, global history, imperialism, Indian Ocean history, Atlantic history, comparative early modern empires
