An indispensable introductory textbook that provides students with a concise overview of the whole sweep of the history of the Low Countries, from Roman frontier provinces through to the establishment of the three constitutional monarchies of the present day. This is an ideal core text for dedicated modules on History of the Low Countries, History of Luxembourg, Dutch History or Belgian History, or a supplementary text for broader modules on European History, which may be offered at all levels of an undergraduate History or European Studies degree. In addition it is a crucial resource for students who may be studying the history of the Benelux region for the first time as part of a taught postgraduate degree in European History, European Studies or Dutch Studies.
