Historical Dictionary of Belgium
by Robert Staellaerts
Book Description Belgium has perhaps been overshadowed by the doings of its powerful neighbors in Western Europe: France, Germany, and The Netherlands. Nevertheless, Belgium is an important point of cultural contact, straddling as it does a major linguistic and cultural divide. Additionally, with its important and proactive role in the European Union, and the increasing tensions within the state, Belgium and Belgian culture cannot remain in the shadows of the larger European states. Robert Stallaerts's "Historical Dictionary of Belgium" is an important and useful work for scholars of Belgium and of Western Europe. In it he presents a broad overview of the many, sometimes contradictory trends and currents in Belgian culture. The "Dictionary" presents Belgium as it has been and as it is. The dictionary itself highlights the most significant persons, parties, and organizations, describes the political and social institutions, and touches on Belgian economy and culture. The thorough dictionary is bolstered by an extensive chronology, a broad introduction, and a comprehensive bibliography. Of special interest to historians, political scientists, and travelers, this ready reference is an essential tool for any collection.
