Anglo-Dutch Moment by Jonathan I. Israel
Book DescriptionMuch new research and writing on the Glorious Revolution of 1688-91 in England, Scotland, Ireland and North America, and on the Dutch role in the Revolution, has materialized in the last few years in connection with the tercentenary celebrations of 1988 and 1989 and the various accompanying conferences, symposia, and exhibitions in Britain, the Netherlands and the United States. There has also been a spate of associated publications. This is, however, the first large-scale work to emerge from the tercentenary commemoration, and the first to attempt to bring together the main strands of the new research and writing for the general reader and for the student, placing the English Revolution of 1688-89 for the first time in its full British, European and American setting, and showing how fundamentally our picture of the Revolution itself, as well as the Revolutionary process of 1688-91 as a whole, is now being transformed.

Books By Author Jonathan I. Israel
Enlightenment Contested, Paperback (November 2008)
In this magisterial survey of the Enlightenment, Jonathan Israel returns to the primary texts to offer a major new reinterpretation of the nature and development of the important currents in philosophical thinking, arguing that supposed national enlightenments are of less significance than the rift between conservative and radical thought.
Radical Enlightenment, Paperback (July 2002)
"The Radical Enlightenment" was a set of ideas which helped lay the foundations of the modern world on the basis of equality, democracy, secularism, and universality. This study by cultural historian, Jonathan Israel, shows how Spinoza and his thought set the intellectual current towards the political revolutions of the later 18th century.
Dutch Republic, Paperback (June 1998)
The Dutch Golden Age was one of the most spectacularly creative episodes in world history. The age of Grotius, Spinoza, Rembrandt, and Vermeer, it was also remarkable for its immense impact in the spheres of commerce, finance, shipping, and technology. This book provides a comprehensive account of the history of the Dutch republic.
Conflicts of Empires, Hardback (July 1997)» View all books by Jonathan I. Israel
The period between the late 16th and the early 18th centuries was one of shifts of balance in political, military and economic power in Europe. This volume argues that Spain's efforts to maintain her hegemony continued, for a number of reasons, to be centred on the Low Countries.
