City in Sight : Dutch Dealings with Urban Change Paperback
Edited by Jan Willem Duyvendak, Frank Hendriks, Mies van Niekerk
Part of the Nicis Publications on Urban Research series
Huge social transformations and turbulent political events - 9/11 and the political murders of Pim Fortuyn and Theo van Gogh - have put urban issues high on the political agenda of the Netherlands.
Against this background, the contributors to this volume bring the city in sight from various disciplinary perspectives and relate their research findings to both national and international debates on urban problems.
In this way, City in Sight not only provides insight into the most urgent questions of contemporary cities in the Netherlands, but also how these relate to similar problems in other countries as well.
