The Dutch Revolt
‘The first comprehensive history of the Revolt by an English historian, and unquestionably supersedes Geyl’ – The Times Literary Supplement
The fruit of twelve years’ intensive research and based on Spanish and Dutch documents from archive and private collections from all over Europe, The Dutch Revolt takes into account religious and economic, as well as political, factors, demonstrating the intricate links that tied the fate of the Netherlands to that of Spain, in an age when ‘particularism was more potent than patriotism’.
‘Performs the near miracle of giving a portrait and an explanation of a large and long event of immense complexity and enormous importance in only 330 pages’ – H.H. Rowen in Sixteenth-Century Journal
‘Brings clarity and thorough scholarship to these complex events. It is a fine blend of descriptive and analytical history’ – Economist
