Lille And The Dutch Revolt
Urban Stability In An Era Of Revolution, 1500-1582
In the literature on the Dutch revolt the experience of the leading textile and trading centre of Lille stands out as singular. Although affected by powerful economic, political, and religious currents that provoked rebellion in many other cities, it was renowned for adhering to the existing order. In this comprehensive study, Robert S. DuPlessis draws on a wide range of primary sources to illuminate the processes of selective adaptation that by the 1560s had endowed Lille with a structural tendency to stability.

"DuPlessis' study makes exemplary use of historiography to establish the issues, of social theory to frame the questions and pursue their answers, and of comparative history to enhance the applicability of the results....his book is a major addition to the study of the Dutch Revolt and to the historical study of collective action." Jan de Vries, Journal of Interdisciplinary History
