About this item

This book aims to reinterpret current perceptions of the Dutch Forty Years War (1672-1713), usually regarded as a struggle against the expansionism of Louis XIV, birthing the European balance of power. Particular attention is given to recent international relations theory, through the examination of popular and official documents, as well as political and diplomatic correspondence. In addition, the Dutch role in the Forty Years War is reconsidered and deconstructed through the use of case studies covering the Year of Disaster (1672), the Glorious Revolution (1688) and the Spanish Succession (1702). While focusing on the emergence and appropriation of Universal Monarchy and Balance of Power discourses, this book also provides counter discourses, allowing readers to explore the lively domestic debate on foreign policy along partisan lines.
