Introduction – A Personal Memoir book
G.J. RENIER, Professor of Dutch History in the University of London, was a man of wit and style, who taught me as an undergraduate and later supervised my doctoral research. He had an antipathy towards historians, whether young or old, who spoke of 'my subject' or 'my period'. The sin will be avoided in this introduction; but since the purpose is to offer an explanation of how the writings in this volume came about, the personal pronoun is all too likely to appear in other contexts. I apologize, both to readers and to Renier's ghost.
