A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. P. J. Veth discovered Multatuli, and he himself was also a remarkable pamphleteer. With his great knowledge of the Dutch Indies - although he never went there himself - Veth played an influential role in the shaping of Dutch identity, of which the vast Asian colony was an inseparable part. His numerous publications on a wide range of subjects attest to his knowledge and industriousness.Paul van der Velde describes Veth s turbulent life and his passionate desire to have the Dutch Indies accepted by the Netherlands as an adult partner. Veth was the scourge of conservatives in the Netherlands, and, as one of the most eminent and internationally reputed Dutch scholars, played quite a remarkable role in the literary and political circles of his time. A Lifelong Passion gives insight into the life of this exceptional nineteenth-century man. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9789067182645
