A tiny country with only two million inhabitants and no natural resources, the Netherlands enjoyed a Golden Age during the 17th century. Economic success, world power and remarkable artistic output marked this prosperous time. Michael North studies the Dutch Golden Age, when Dutch society had the greatest number of cities and highest literacy rate in Europe. It also boasted great religious tolerance, large numbers of privately and publicly owned art works and a well-formed, wide-ranging social network. Art and Commerce in the Dutch Golden Age is an invaluable reference for students and scholars.
