Empowering interactions political cultures and the emergence of the state in Europe, 1300-1900 by Willem Pieter Blockmans( file )
19 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,031 libraries worldwide
This volume explores the emergence of the state in Europe between the fourteenth and nineteenth centuries. Through a series of case studies and historiographical, methodological and theoretical essays, it challenges the traditional top-down model of state development long held by historians. Instead it explores the numerous ways in which non-elite groups could influence the formation of national political institutions
The promised lands : the Low Countries under Burgundian rule, 1369-1530 by Willem Pieter Blockmans( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 458 libraries worldwide
They were, in the words of one contemporary observer, "the Promised Lands." In all of Europe, only Northern Italy could rival the economic power and cultural wealth of the Low Countries in the later Middle Ages.<br /><br />In The Promised Lands , Wim Blockmans and Walter Prevenier trace the relations between the cultural and economic developments of the Low Countries and the political evolution of the region under the rule of the dukes of Burgundy. Combining political, diplomatic, administrative, economic, social, artistic, and cultural history, Blockmans and Prevenier have synthesized the most recent research on the subject-much of it their own-to produce the most accessible and authoritative book in English on the subject.<br /><br />This is an updated and revised translation of a classic work first published in 1988, now expanded and reoriented toward a broader international readership

Emperor Charles V, 1500-1558 by Willem Pieter Blockmans( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 339 libraries worldwide
"The world of the first half of the sixteenth century was exceptionally dynamic. Voyages of discovery made the world larger; science and technology were revolutionized; Christian thought underwent a powerful renewal; the population and economy of Europe grew. And in the midst of this constellation of change, one man - the Emperor Charles V - ruled a conglomeration of territory more extensive than that previously held by any ruler in European history." "What can one person, given an inordinate amount of power by quirk of fate, achieve? How much freedom did he in fact have? Did it help him reach his objectives? What unwanted results ensued from his actions? The relationship between the will of an individual and the power of structures in times of such mutability is at the core of Professor Blockman's enquiry. He brings to the task a range of languages - without which it is scarcely possible to do justice to Charles's widespread, linguistically diverse imperium - a keen awareness of the most recent findings of modern scholarship, and the fruits of a professional lifetime's reflection."--BOOK JACKET
