In War, Capital, and the Dutch State (1588-1795), Pepijn Brandon traces the interaction between state and capital in the organization of warfare in the Dutch Republic from the Dutch Revolt of the sixteenth century to the Batavian Revolution of 1795. Combining deep theoretical insight with a thorough examination of original source material on topics as diverse as the role of the Dutch East- and West-India Companies, the inner workings of the Amsterdam naval shipyard, state policy, and the role of private intermediaries in military finance, Brandon provides a sweeping new interpretation of the rise and fall of the Dutch Republic as a hegemonic power within the early modern capitalist world-system.
