In Going Dutch, renowned writer Lisa Jardine tells the remarkable history of the relationship between <_st13a_country-region _w3a_st="on">England and <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on">Holland, two of <_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Europe’s most important colonial powers at the dawn of the modern age. Jardine, the author of The Awful End of Prince William the Silent, demonstrates that England’s rise did not come at the expense of the Dutch as is commonly thought, but was actually a “handing on” of the baton of cultural and intellectual supremacy to a nation expanding in international power and influence.<_o3a_p>

Lisa Jardine, Commander of the Order of the British Empire, is the director of the Centre for Editing Lives and Letters, the centenary professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary, University of London, and a fellow of the Royal Historical Society. She lives with her husband and three children in London.
