This is the story of the Dutch at the height of their cultural and commercial achievement, And while it is not light reading, in fact, the tome itself is hefty, it is a wonderful read, As Americans tend to emphasize the British influence on this country, and underestimate the Dutch, the book also ...
I was interested in this book after seeing it on a number of bestseller lists a few years ago. I am a fan of Alison Weir's historical novels of the Elizabethan period, and always wondered about the Dutch culture of the 1400s-1800s particularly for the artistic endeavors of the period and the economic ...
