Manchester University Press have just brought out the latest volume in the "Britain and the Netherlands" series (as it used to be known - I'm not sure it still functions as a series). The title is Catholic Communities in Protestant States: Britain and the Netherlands c. 1570 - 1720.
The volume contains papers from a conference held in Amsterdam and Leiden in late 2006 - among them a piece by me about how the Southern Netherlands (now Belgium) functioned as the prime point of contact and support in Counter-Reformation Europe for Catholic minorities of Britain and the Netherlands. Most of the other essays deal more with the internal (political, social, devotional) affairs of the Dutch and British Catholic communities.
