I do not mean here “bilocal” in the anthropological sense of place of residence based on kinship patterning. I refer instead to theories about “experiences” of bilocality that some scholars have described as taking place in one geographic location. 6. See, for example, Jared Diamond, Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies (New York: Norton, 1997). 7.

On the British Atlantic as part of a broader approach to colonization that was manifest in Australasia as well, see these essays specifically: William M. Offutt, “The Atlantic Rules: The Legalistic Turn in Colonial British America”; Elizabeth Mancke, “Chartered Enterprises and the 286 Notes to Pages 4–15 Evolution of the British Atlantic World”; and John E. Crowley, “A Visual Empire: Seeing the British Atlantic World From a Global British Perspective.” 9. The recent literature on this and the debates that they prompt have been well discussed .

Recent work by Benjamin Schmidt, among a few others, has begun to establish some beachheads for exploring that issue.
