  • The contribution of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg to Europe's heritage has been immense. Their histories cannot be written in isolation from one another, or even from those of their neighbors. To examine the history of the Low Countries is to encounter the narrative of a region that, for centuries, has been at the crossroads of Western Europe. This introductory overview of the Low Countries' history traces their social, cultural and political development from Roman rule to the present day. Through the rise of the merchant classes, the Renaissance, the Golden Age, the era of revolutions, and two world wars, this fully updated third edition considers political developments since 2011, including an expanded final chapter with new material on terrorism; includes extended coverages of global history, with further detail on the European Union; and features an annotated bibliography as well as new and revised maps.
