This history of Dutch 17th century life explores the Dutch nation that invented itself from the ground up. Attaining unprecedented affluence while living in dread of being corrupted by such, the author draws on extensive documents and wonderfully reproduced art, he tells of bloody uprisings, the plague of tobacco and how the Dutch celebrated themselves while being maligned by their enemies.
