"...this is a very significant study that enlightens many long-neglected aspects of the Dutch revolt by focusing on one locality, thereby not only clarifying the mechanism of maintaining stability in an age of revolution but shedding light on the process of revolution itself." Sixteenth Century Journal "Robert DuPlesses has written an important monograph that will undoubtedly be cited frequently in the future by scholars working on practically all aspects of the Hapsburg Netherlands in the sixteenth century." American Historical Review "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
