Professor Israel s book is the first volume in what is clearly intended to be a new series of definitive texts Oxford University Press s History of Early Modern Europe The book is certainly superbly produced albeit a bit short of maps and is packed with information on a fascinating subject No doubt the Dutch achievement in the seventeenth century was amazing after rebelling from Spain the Dutch turned themselves into a world powerbecame the freest and most advanced society in Europe although Dutch freedom had its limits as Professor Israel makes clear and produced a galaxy of stunning artists Rembrandt Vermeer Hals etc All this based on nothing but hard work and daring and founded on a country that Dutchmen made themselves God made the world but the Dutch made Holland as they say So a great subject a magnificent looking book and a first rate scholar who really knows his stuff and who has published a number of excellent books And yet it doesn t uite get thereI don t agree with those who say that this book is in the same league as Simon Schama s I am a historian but found the book very hard going I think one problem was the author s obsessive focus on the internal rivalries of the Dutch provinces and towns By the time the states of Friesland and the States of Zeeland and the States of Holland and the States General had all fallen out with themselves yet again for the umpteenth time my eyes were starting to glaze overI m sure it s very important to understanding Dutch history but I felt the material on internal rivalries and jealousies needed to be shortened and the issues clarified for the non specialist As well as being overburdened with material on internal politics other aspects of the Dutch achievement were covered very sketchily I was surprised for such a large book to have so little on the Dutch seaborne empire Israel is mainly interested in the VOC as a factor in Dutch internal politics There is one chapter on the overseas empire but it is not very detailed and Israel is clearly not especially interested in it As a citizan of a country named after all after a Dutch province and whose first European discoverer was a Dutchman I was disappointed to see so little on the DUtch in North America Brazil Ceylon South Africa and the East Indies The book is essentially a detailed internal political history of the Seven Provinces in 1100 pages I also would have liked to know about art and literature Perhaps the book basically reflects a tendency in modern European historical writing to focus on internal politics and European affairs and to minimise and downplay the European overseas empires For a great world seapower like the Netherlands this seems very limiting Older works on the Dutch empire by C R Boxer and others still remain essential reading
