Monarchies, States Generals and Parliaments: The Netherlands in the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Centuries
Cambridge University Press, 22. nov. 2001 - 381 strani
Charts the history of the States General - the parliament - of the Netherlands and its relations with two phases of monarchical rule in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Unlike the English parliament, the States General was a composite body, representing the local estates of the separate provinces which were anxious to keep their autonomy. The history of the States General was determined by this structure, and by its relations with the monarchy: dukes of Burgundy in the fifteenth century, and Spanish Habsburgs in the sixteenth. Ideally, everyone was meant to cooperate. In practice, there was already a major crisis by the 1480s, and divisions from the 1560s led to decades of civil war. By 1600 the Netherlands had split between the United Provinces - a parliamentary regime, governed as a republic by the States General - and the Spanish Netherlands.

Stran 342 - Ja! diesem Sinne bin ich ganz ergeben, Das ist der Weisheit letzter Schluß: Nur der verdient sich Freiheit wie das Leben, Der täglich sie erobern muß!
Stran 342 - Ay, in this thought I pledge my faith unswerving, Here wisdom speaks its final word and true, None is of freedom or of life deserving Unless he daily conquers it anew. With dangers thus begirt, defying fears, Childhood, youth, age shall strive through strenuous years. Such busy, teeming throngs I long to see, Standing on freedom's soil, a people free.
