  • Tulip Mania: The History and Legacy of the World's First Speculative Bubble during the Dutch Golden Age

    *Includes pictures*Includes contemporary accounts*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsIf one were to glide over the Dutch countryside via helicopter in the springtime, the beauty below them would seem almost surreal. The rolling rectangular fields are composed of immaculately neat, horizontal stripes in vibrant swatches of scarlet, pink, lavender, cream-white, and midnight-blue. The ethereal sight is even more breathtaking when one takes a stroll along these fields, surrounded by endless carpets of bright color. These world-famous three-petal, three-sepal flowers, all craning their necks towards the dazzling sun, are none other than Dutch tulips. The Netherlands is now the world's leading commercial producer of tulips, shipping out more than 3 billion of these colorful beauties each year. Standard tulips, depending on where one is based, typically sell for anywhere between $1.00 to $3.50 USD per stem today. They are a creative alternative to roses, lilies, and other traditional flowers. Needless to say, like every other floral breed, special tulips – such as hybrids, or ones with unique, multi-colored streaks and patterns – will cost buyers a pretty penny, but a bouquet is certainly not going to break the bank.

  • The Tulips Are Red (The Story of a Jewish Girl in the Dutch Resistance during World War II)

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR At the outbreak of World War II, Leesha Rose was finishing high-school in The Hague. The Nazi invasion of Holland in 1940 disrupted her plans and changed the entire direction of her life. Her parents and her two brothers were deported to concen­tration camps, Auschwitz and Sobibor. She worked as a nurse in Jewish hospitals in Amsterdam and escaped deportation on three separate occasions at great risk to ber life. In 1943 she became active in the Dutch Resistance assuming a new name and identity. Besides finding hiding-places for hundreds of Jews and feeding and caring for them, Leesha participated in under­ground activities against the Nazi oppressor. At war's end she learned from the Red Cross that her parents and brothers had been annihilated. She began medical studies at the University of Amsterdam while engaged in helping to smug­gle Jews to Israel. In 1950 and 1951 she was a social worker in the new State of Israel and worked with the olim who had arrived on the `Magic Carpet' from Yemen and North Africa. In the United States until 1973 she taught in schools in Long Island, New York, and was a leader in organizations devoted to education and social work. In 1983, she was awarded the Resistance Medal by the Dutch Government in recognition of her participa...

  • Tulipmania: Money, Honor, and Knowledge in the Dutch Golden Age

    In the 1630s the Netherlands was gripped by tulipmania: a speculative fever unprecedented in scale and, as popular history would have it, folly. We all know the outline of the story—how otherwise sensible merchants, nobles, and artisans spent all they had (and much that they didn’t) on tulip bulbs. We have heard how these bulbs changed hands hundreds of times in a single day, and how some bulbs, sold and resold for thousands of guilders, never even existed. Tulipmania is seen as an example of the gullibility of crowds and the dangers of financial speculation.             But it wasn’t like that. As Anne Goldgar reveals in Tulipmania, not one of these stories is true. Making use of extensive archival research, she lays waste to the legends, revealing that while the 1630s did see a speculative bubble in tulip prices, neither the height of the bubble nor its bursting were anywhere near as dramatic as we tend to think. By clearing away the accumulated myths, Goldgar is able to show us instead the far more interesting reality: the ways in which tulipmania reflected deep anxieties about the transformation of Dutch society in the Golden Age.            “Goldgar tells us at the start of her excellent debunking book: ‘Most of what we have heard of [tulipman...
