Book summary

Regarded by many (including Simon Schama) as Pieter Geyl's finest work, this enthralling study describes the struggle between the House of Orange and the Regents of Holland in the mid-seventeenth century. In light of the links with the English House of Stuart, he views the dynastic marriage of William II and Mary as the root of future conflicts. An absorbing tale of intrigue and ambition.
