Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This work represents the "latest scholarship" on the Dutch revolt against Spanish rule in the 16th century; a collection of academic essays on various aspects of the struggle. Beginning with a useful, if short, narrative of events and overview of recent historiography, the book examines the role of the aristocracy, religion, the towns and provinces, the Spanish strategic perspective, finance and ideology. While I learned a lot, I feel that I would have been better served by making my first book on the topic a narrative history, such as Geoffrey Parker's work The Dutch Revolt, which I might have read if it were in print. There's plenty of interesting information here, but it's not what you'd call a ripping great read, and I think that it should probably be the 2nd book you read on this fascinating struggle in early modern Europe.
