The result of a political union between the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, the United Kingdom of the Netherlands was a short-lived political project that existed between 1815 and 1830. During the kingdom’s existence, its monarch King William I took several steps to stimulate nationalism and strengthen the political union between the three territories. It was during this time that a large number of book clubs came into being, and attracted a large membership. Arnold Lubbers explores the extent to which these clubs and choice of literature contributed to nation-building.
