Description
Information
Often thought to be a series of uprisings rather than a single revolution, the Dutch Revolt saw the Netherlands breaking away from the domination of Spain, with its monarchy and landed nobility. Although resistance to Spanish government came slowly, the Netherlands were united in their desire for religious tolerance, finding an ally in the newly Protestant England.

In this book, Geoffrey Parker examines the factors - political, economic and religious - that had tied the fate of the Netherlands to that of Spain. Based on twelve years' intensive research using Spanish and Dutch documents from all over Europe, this account is a wonder of concise narration and brilliant explanation.
