This A level book deals with the background to the Dutch revolts and the course of events, followed by an analysis of its military, economic/social and constitutional aspects. The series provides analysis of complex issues and problems in important A level Modern History topics. Using supporting documents, the books give students an account of historical facts and an understanding of the central themes and differing interpretations. There is a collection of documents at the back of each book, designed to be used by students to deepen their understanding of the subject and allow practice at using interpreting sources (now a widespread element at A level). The book is aimed at for A level and first year degree students of history and colleges of further education.
