Chapter Summary

This index presents terms and concepts relevant to an analysis of the wine and brandy trade between France and the Dutch Republic in the first half of the seventeenth century. The book bridges economic and social history, and forces a reassessment of four early modern historiographies: Dutch, French, Jewish, and Atlantic. The Dutch were attracted to Nantes as a supply zone for brandy and Loire wines; and the traceable number of Dutch residents in Nantes peaked at the same time as Nantes' alcohol exports, clear evidence of the strong relationship between the local supply of alcohol and Dutch demand.

Keywords: brandy trade; Dutch Republic; France; Nantes; seventeenth century; wine trade
