Review Readers in general will find that the book resonates with contemporary concerns about the extralegal power of the state in times of crisis, about reconciliation after civil war and internal conflicts, and about the horrific impact of war on the average person. The level of detail and necessity of background knowledge may make the book too involved to assign in an undergraduate class, but despite its narrow geographic and temporal focus, is an enriching read for historians with a wide range of interests. -- Laura Lisy-Wagner, H-Net Reviews Readers will appreciate the fact that the lucid writing of the Dutch volume has been preserved in Grayson's excellent translation, making this book an accessible, important source of knowledge about people, environment, and the horrors of war. -- Marybeth Carlson, Journal of Interdisciplinary History Van Nierop achieves the ultimate aims of microhistorical study by exploring a fascinating local case of politics, power, and law to illuminate wide-ranging characteristics of war and society in sixteenth-century Holland. -- Charles H. Parker, Journal of Modern History [Henk van Nierop] has successfully challenged various historical myths that became ingrained in the historiography about the Dutch Revolt and nascent Republic during the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. -- Kees Boterbloem, Canadian Journal of History This is an important, remarkable, and extremely sophisticated study. . . . If one was unfortunate enough to have to recommend a single book on a topic as rich and diverse as the Dutch revolt and its message to us today, this book would be it. -- Robert Von Friedeburg, American Historical Review Van Nierop tells a compelling tale. . . . Van Nierop has thrown light on an important episode in the Dutch Revolt, cast within current historiographical orthodoxy, which tends to depict the bulk of the Dutch population as hapless victims of a war not of their choosing. -- Brian G. H. Ditcham, Sixteenth Century Journal From the Inside Flap "Treason in the Northern Quarter is an impressive study that presents the true nature of the Dutch Revolt and the horror that civil war and revolution bring to ordinary people."--Geoffrey Parker, author of The Thirty Years' War and The Grand Strategy of Philip II
