Two societies, two conceptions of justice, collaborated and collided when French forces stormed Cartagena of the Indies in May 1697. For their commander, the baron de Pointis, a naval captain in the mould of Drake, this bloody if strategically pointless success fulfilled a long-postponed design ""that might be both honourable and advantageous"", with ships lent and soldiers (but not seamen) paid by the King, who in return would take the Crown''s usual one-fifth interest in such ""preis de vaisseaux"", the remaining costs falling on private subscribers, in this case no less than 666 of them, he

" ... In the present book five British and five Dutch historians study the relationship between a metropolis and its dependencies in the modern history of their countries. Two authors investigate the role of London in the development of the British economy and the British way of life. Two others analyse aspects of Scottish and Irish relations with England. One paper is concerned with the influence exercised in the eighteenth century on the House of Commons by 'country' attitudes. Apart from a paper on a striking example of provincial influence on Dutch civilisation generally ... the Dutch contributors have sought to write a short history of the changing significance of the Outer Provinces in a country dominated by Holland, the real 'metropolis. ..."--Jacket

AS Dr. Coen Tamse points out in the introductory essay specially written for this volume, what we call myths are all too often the errors and misconceptions of others. Time being short and human un­ derstanding imperfect, it is wise to suppose that posterity will convict us all of thinking and acting in some sort within mythological uni­ verses; only a dead myth is by common consent recognized as a false reading of reality. And yet, in our troubled century, we have witnessed the deliberate fabrication of mythologies, apart from the inheritance of earlier growths like those which still feed nationalism and anti­ Semitism. It almost looks as if mass democracies positively require neatly packaged and emotionally charged explanations of the social and political environment as a substitute for religion. At all events, the modern science of public relations has advanced far enough for cer­ tain regimes, or for those who seek to overthrow them, to make a calculated appeal to the vanities, anxieties and frustrations of ordinary people by offering highly simplified explanations of a baffling world, often in easily grasped pictorial or dramatic forms, whether the object is to condition obedience or incite to 'struggle'. The advent of the mass media is generally, if unfairly, taken to have opened limitless new op­ portunities for the manipulation of our thought-processes, even below the threshold of consciousness
