■ comprises the most recent scholarship and up to date occasions, bringing the tale correct as much as today
■ presents clean assurance of immigration, multiculturalism, and the resurgence of nationalism within the Low Countries
■ deals a short dialogue of the increase of secularism in Western Europe and the way this has affected the Benelux region
■ outlines the international locations' contemporary monetary successes and failures
■ features a new checklist of political events and governments when you consider that 1918

A heritage of the Low Countries is perfect for these looking a concise and readable creation to the historical past of a sector which, for hundreds of years, has been on the crossroads of Western Europe.
