The Dutch seaborne empire, 1600-1800 by C. R Boxer( Book )

89 editions published between 1959 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 1,856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did two low-lying and relatively uninviting provinces on the North Sea join to become the principal seafaring nation of the world within a single generation? Why was this spectacular rise, accompanied by an equally impressive flourishing of the arts and sciences in the Dutch "Golden Age" of the seventeenth century, succeeded by a loss of dynamism and impetus in the "Periwig Period" of the eighteenth century? Here is a vivid picture of the rise and fall of a remarkable society. Boxer investigates such themes as the attitudes of the ruling class and the working class to each other and to Dutch expansion overseas; who emigrated to the East and West Indies, and why and how; the commercial monopolies of the chartered India Companies; the daily life of Dutch merchants and mariners in the tropics; South Africa as a colony sui generis; and the true nature of the decline into the stagnant "Periwig Period."--Adapted from dust jacket

18 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and Portuguese and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The distinguished historian C.R. Boxer devoted years fo research and reflection on European expansion overseas into the Americas and Asia. In this analytical survey of the role of the Portuguese and Spanish missionaries of the Roman Catholic Church in the overseas expansion of the Iberian powers, he finds that the lasting results vary enormously. "They range," he writes, "from enduring mass conversions in some regions, of which sixteenth-century New Spain is the prime example, to the total failure in other countries, such as Cambodia, where the number of indigenous converts could be counted on two hands." Considering the church as "a human as well as a divine institution," the author focuses on four types of organizational problems: relations between the regular and the secular clergy; the mission as a frontier institution in many climes and many cultures; the close and inseparable connection between Cross and Crown; and the role of the Inquisition overseas. Boxer finds that "the mere survival of these Christian minorities through the vicissitudes of over three centuries is a tribute to the work of the dedicated missionaries of the Church Militant in times past."
