About This Book

Books offering an overview of Dutch history are few and far between in the English-speaking world. Friso Wielenga's A History of the Netherlands: From the Sixteenth Century to the Present Day fills this gap. It offers a modern, integrated outline of Dutch history from the period in which the country took shape as a geographical, administrative and political entity and undermines the presumption that Dutch history since the 16th century was characterised by political consensus and religious toleration. Domestic and foreign politics take pride of place, interwoven with the broad lines of economic and cultural developments, as Wielenga uses the Netherlands' geographical location and its international relations to better understand the partially tumultuous past and present of this small land on the North Sea.

A History of the Netherlands provides an authoritative, comprehensive in-depth survey and will be of great value to students of modern European history.

INTRODUCTION
7
to 
Indonesia 
in 
1949 
signalled 
the 
end 
of 
the 
Netherlands’ 
status 
as 
an 
important 
colonial 
power. 
There 
was 
a 
second 
watershed 
in 
the 
1960s, 
when 
traditional 
political 
structures 
eroded, 
democratization 
was 
given 
priority 
and 
new 
political 
conventions 
made 
their 
appearance. 
This 
book 
ends 
with 
an 
analysis 
of 
what 
is 
happening 
in 
the 
early 
twenty-first 
century. 
Given 
the 
emergence 
of 
right-wing 
populism, 
changing 
global 
balances 
of 
power, 
and 
massive 
financial 
and 
economic 
turbulence, 
this 
may 
well 
be 
considered 
in 
the 
future 
as 
the 
start 
of 
a 
new 
phase. 
This 
Dutch 
political 
history 
concludes 
with 
a 
few 
key 
lines 
that 
are 
drawn 
from 
the 
sixteenth 
century 
to 
the 
present 
day 
(Chapter 
7).
