Trade, Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange

Commercial relations between the North Sea area and the Baltic contributed in a fundamental way to Holland's economic dominance in the seventeenth century. They were embedded in a region where numerous expressions of a common culture facilitated the mobility of people and commodities or the spreading of tastes and ideas. The German Hansa played a very important role in this process, but also after its decline, economic contacts between the North Sea region and the Baltic continued and with them a prolonged process of cultural interaction. This volume describes the interconnections of the various aspects of the common economic culture in the region between ca. 1350 and 1750.

In the late Middle Ages and the Early Modern period, Northern Europe was a crucible of political, maritime and economic activity. Ships from ports all around the Baltic Sea as well as from the Low Countries plied the Baltic waters, triggering market integration, migration flows, nautical innovations and the dissemination of cultural values. This archival guide is an essential research tool for scholars studying these Baltic connections, providing descriptions of almost 1000 archival collections concerning trade, shipping, merchants, commodities, diplomacy, finances and migration in the years 1450-1800. These rich and varied sources kept at more than 100 repositories in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia and Sweden are herewith collected for the first time.

The Sea and Civilization

A monumental, wholly accessible work of scholarship that retells human history through the story of mankind's relationship with the sea. An accomplishment of both great sweep and illuminating detail, The Sea and Civilization is a stunning work of history that reveals in breathtaking depth how people first came into contact with one another by ocean and river, and how goods, languages, religions, and entire cultures spread across and along the world's waterways. Lincoln Paine takes us back to the origins of long-distance migration by sea with our ancestors' first forays from Africa and Eurasia to Australia and the Americas. He demonstrates the critical role of maritime trade to the civilizati...

Koggen, kooplieden en kantoren

De Hanze heeft een magische klank, een klank van samenwerking, wederzijds vertrouwen, van individuele steden die zich ontplooiden en een internationaal handelsnetwerk dat in het middeleeuwse Europa zijn weerga niet kende. Het bestond uit ongeveer tweehonderd steden in het noorden van het Duitse Rijk waar Nederland tot 1648 formeel ook toe behoorde. Deze bundel beoogt de lezer een gevarieerd en modern beeld te geven van het functioneren van de Hanze als belangengemeenschap en koopliedennetwerk dat bijna vierhonderd jaar zijn stempel drukte op handel en politiek van het Noord- en Oostzeegebied.
