Growth and decline of Dutch cities

The Netherlands is a country of cities. Over the past ten centuries, a dense pattern has emerged of small, large, old and new cities. The growth and decline of Dutch cities is clearly shown in this atlas using photos, paintings and new series of maps. Topical themes such as rezoning, reconstruction and the development of city centres and urban peripheries are also included in this publication.

There is also a Dutch version.
