Political Education (1582); 5. Short Exposition (1587). "This is a major new English-language edition of five central texts in the history of the political thought of the Dutch Revolt. Published between 1570 and 1590 these texts exemplify the development of the political ideas which motivated and legitimated the resistance to the government of Philip II in the Low Coutnries, and which became the crucial part of the ideological foundations of the Dutch Rpublic as it started to become one of Europe's main powers... In the introduction, which locates the five texts in their political and intellectualcontexts, Martin van Gelderen argues that the Revolt's political thought w as as much inspired by the indigenous legacy of Dutch constitutionalism andcivic consiousness as by the intellectual legacy of the late Middle Ages, Renaissance and Reformation. Biographical notes and numerous annotations are provided to aid the student in exploring some of the most innovative texts of the Dutch Revolt; this edition also includes a chronology of the Revolt's main events and a guide to further reading." -fromthe dj.
