We got this for my son's A-level studies. It's an expensive text book, even second hand, but was recommended and not widely available. It's recognised as an important work for this area of history. Given the cost, I was most pleased to have Amazon offer to re-purchase the book after we have no need for it any longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A clear account of a very complicated transformation 28 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Dutch revolt is a pivotal event in European history that remains blurry and poorly understood by most people. Mr. Parker does an excellent job of clearly explaining the sequence of events as well as their context. A very readable style and a refreshingly objective perspective carry the story with just the right level of detail for the interested reader. I am very happy to have read this book and recommend it warmly to anybody interested in history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine Narrative and Overview 26 Dec. 2004
By R. Albin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This well written and concise (less than 300 pages) book is a nice introduction to the great revolt of the Netherlands from the rule of the Hapsburg-Spanish Monarchy. Written by a well known expert on early modern Europe, The Dutch Revolt provides the relevant background detail, essential narrative, and analysis needed to understand the major features of the Dutch rebellion. Parker draws extensively on a largely Dutch and Belgian secondary literature unavailable to English speaking readers. A notable feature of this book is that Parker does a very nice job of portraying the war from the point of view of both major protagonists, that of the various Dutch leaders and that of the Spanish Court. Parker shows also the complex international quality of European politics in this period. Events in the Mediterranean, for example, had a large impact on Spanish policies in the Netherlands. Parker deals as well, briefly but insightfully, with the relevant social and religous history of the revolt, and with its aftermath, the emergence of the United Provinces (the northern Netherlands) as a great European and world power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Europes First Republic 13 Jan. 2000
By F. van Boetzelaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the best history ever written about the Dutch Revolt - a series of upheavals from 1568 to 1648 - which led to the independent United Provinces. This was Europes first republic which survived until the French Revolution.
