The Dutch revolt against Spanish rule in the sixteenth century was a formative event in European history. The Origins and Development of the Dutch Revolt brings together in one volume the latest scholarship from leading experts in the field, to illuminate why the Dutch revolted, the way events unfolded and how they gained independence. In exploring the desire of the Dutch to control their own affairs, it also questions whether Dutch identity came about by accident.

The book makes the most recent research available in English for the first time, focusing on:

* the role of the aristocracy

* religion

* the towns and provinces

* the Spanish perspective

* finance and ideology.


'Graham Darby has assembled a strong group of writers to produce a sound and judicious survey of what is a very formative event in the history of early modern Europe.'History
