War, State, and Society in England and the Netherlands 1477-1559

Steven Gunn, David Grummitt, and Hans Cools

Comparing the effects of war on England and the Netherlands, this book tests the idea that war increased rulers' power over their subjects. Exploring themes such as national identity and religious change, the result is a compelling and nuanced picture of societies and polities tested and shaped by the pressures of ever more demanding warfare.
