This introductory overview of the Low Countries’ history traces their development since Roman times, providing equal weighting to the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Paul Arblaster looks at political, cultural and social history, including the rise of the merchant classes, the Renaissance and Golden Age, and the two world wars of the twentieth-century. The final chapter has been expanded and revised to take into account developments since 2011. This third edition is thoroughly updated and revised throughout and benefits from our recently refreshed series design.

This timely and engaging narrative provides an invaluable starting-point for students of History focusing on the Low Countries, European Studies and Dutch studies.

Arblaster ably demonstrates that the Low Countries have always been a crossroads in Europe, with a diversity of people. It was true when the Romans first invaded in 57 BC, and is still true in the 21st century. – John B. Roney, Sacred Heart University, USA
Paul Arblaster’s revised History of the Low Countries remains a most useful introduction to this dynamic region for students and researchers alike. In this day and age, the book's cross-temporal and transnational approach seems more valuable than ever. – Jonas Roelens, Ghent University, Belgium
