Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Dutch Golden Age, known for its renowned artists and writers, was also remarkable for its immense impact on the spheres of commerce, finance, shipping, and technology. Israel gives the definitive account of the emergence of the United Provinces as a great power, its subsequent decline in the 18th century, and the changing relationship between the northern Netherlands and the south, which was to develop into modern Belgium. 32 color plates.

Review:

The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Those with a serious interest in the history of the Netherlands will not only have to read this book, they will enjoy it." Sixteenth Century Journal

Review:

"Because it is so thoroughly researched and up-to-date, it is...the kind of indispensable handbook that deserves a place on every early modernist's bookshelf." American Historical Review
