Series - Colonial and Global History through Dutch Sources

The Colonial and Global History through Dutch Sources series stimulates historical research based on Dutch archival and primary sources. These sources are imperative for understanding Dutch overseas history from the time of the earliest explorations to the latest phase of decolonization. At the same time, Dutch sources provide a fascinating contemporary window on the regional histories of Africa, the Americas, and Asia and how these areas were linked through global networks of migration, trade, and empire. Hence the series effectively combines Dutch sources with materials of other European powers and/or that of their local African, American, and Asian counterparts. The result is a peer-refereed series of dissertations, monographs, edited volumes, and edited translations of key texts that not only build on the rich Dutch colonial archive but also integrate the Dutch case into a much wider global framework of comparisons and connections.
