This book is a reprint of Jaap R. Bruijn’s 1993 book, The Dutch Navy, which offers an English-language overview of the history of the Dutch Navy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It is divided into three chronological periods: the ‘old’, ‘new’, and ‘second-rate’ navy. Rather than presenting a history of naval conflict, this volume approaches Dutch naval history from the following four angles: operations, administration, officer duties, and sailor duties. It consists of a series foreword, a new introduction detailing recent developments in naval historiography, the original introduction providing a history of Dutch maritime history from the middle ages to the beginning of the seventeenth century, a conclusion, and a bibliography and index. It explores the astounding amount of naval power belonging to such a sparsely populated nation, plus the rapid rates of success and decline. It confirms that the Dutch navy - with its logic, innovation, and missteps alike - provides an excellent case study of both the development of European bureaucracy and armed forces in the Early Modern period.

Back cover: "De Nederlandse schilderkunst van de zeventiende eeuw blijft fascineren. De Tachtigjarige Oorlog maakte dat mensen in grote groepen van Zuid- naar Noord-Nederland trokken. De bevolking van de Noord-Nederlandse steden groeide explosief, het aantal schilders verveelvoudigde zich en de productie moet enorm zijn geweest. Kunnen we tot een beter begrip van de stormachtige ontwikkeling van de schilderkunst komen? Het beroep was gebonden aan de regels van het gilde, de leerling werd in het vak opgeleid en er moeten beroepsgeheimen hebben gegolden. Toch is er hier en daar over geschreven. Er worden aspecten genoemd, zoals het bedenken van een voorstelling, het tekenen van de vormen, de plaatsing in het vlak, het kleurgebruik. Een vast omlijnde theorie van de schilderkunst is er tot in de achttiende eeuw niet van gekomen. We moeten het doen met gegevens uit verspreide geschriften en toevallige publicaties. Hessel Miedema heeft deze bij elkaar gebracht".

How did painters and their public speak about art in Rembrandt's age? This book about the writings of the painter-poet Samuel van Hoogstraten, one of Rembrandt's pupils, examines a wide variety of themes from painting practice and theory from the Dutch Golden Age. It addresses the contested issue of 'Dutch realism' and its hidden symbolism, as well as Rembrandt's concern with representing emotions in order to involve the spectator. Diverse aspects of imitation and illusion come to the fore, such as the theory behind sketchy or 'rough' brushwork and the active role played by the viewer's imagination. Taking as its starting point discussions in Rembrandt's studio, this unique study provides an ambitious overview of Dutch artists' ideas on painting.

"In most of the industrialized Western world, the birth process has been almost completely removed from the domain of the woman and the family into the realm of technocratic specialists. To imagine that there exists an industrialized country, the Netherlands, with all the resources of modern medicine, of pharmacology and surgery, where women and care providers actively espouse a noninterventionist stance in childbirth, has always been one of the great puzzles, paradoxes, and revelations in our field. This book traces this most anomalous phenomenon."--Back cover.

Many think they know the legends behind tulipmania and the legacy of the Dutch East India Tea Company, but what basic knowledge of Dutch history and culture should be passed on to future generations? A Key to Dutch History and its resulting overview of historical highlights, assembled by a number of specialists in consultation with the Dutch general public, provides a thought-provoking and timely answer. The democratic process behind the volume is reminiscent of the way in which the Netherlands has succeeded for centuries at collective craftsmanship, and says as much about the Netherlands as does the outcome of the opinions voiced.
