From Revolt to Riches: Culture and History of the Low Countries, 1500-1700

From Revolt to Riches: Culture and History of the Low Countries, 1500-1700 by Theo Hermans
English | Mar. 1, 2017 | ISBN: 1910634875 | 316 Pages | PDF | 30 MB

It is a pleasure to introduce this third publication in UCL Press’s Global Dutch series. From Revolt to Riches: Culture and History of the Low Countries, 1500–1700 is a re- edition of a collection of essays that the UCL Centre for Low Countries Studies produced in the 1990s as part of the occasional series Crossways, self- published in a small edition, no longer obtainable and not widely held by university libraries.1 The very fortunate co- occurrence of the refoundation of the UCL Centre for Low Countries Studies in 2014 and the launch of UCL Press, the UK’s first Open Access university press (and one of the first worldwide) in 2015 finally enables us to make this highly respected but so far difficult to access body of scholarship available to a worldwide audience.
