Author Fred Feddes threads together 40 stories about the original landscape of present-day Amsterdam, its reclamation, the changing relationship between water and land, and the continuing history of the city’s growth, rebuilding and urban planning.
With its starting point at Dam Square, the book fans out through the city and surrounding region, and through time from the year 1000 until the present day.
Filled with archival photographs, illustrations and maps, the book imparts a comprehensive and fascinating spatial history of this complex Dutch city.
