Abstract

This article examines late seventeenth-century news management through the lens of the Haarlem journalist, Abraham Casteleyn. Its aim is to challenge the idea that ‘foreign’ news was of minor importance in Restoration England, by examining how contemporaries responded to titles such as the Haarlem Courant, and to show that Dutch news was integral to domestic politics. It examines the demand for Dutch news by English readers, Whig activists and government officials; explores the ways in which Casteleyn’s newspaper caused concern within the regime because of its potential to be exploited for nefarious political ends and explores how the Stuart regime responded by devising subtle methods for managing Dutch news.
