About the book
The Dutch and their Delta tells you all about the Netherlands and water; how a country that lies below sea-level exists under such circumstances and still manages to be prosperous.
The book offers fascinating insights on how a society can function around sea level, striking a balance between developments in the past, the present and the future, steering clear from both generalisations and too much technological detail.
Readers can educate themselves about the famous dikes, polders, windmills, dams, and storm surge barriers of the Netherlands and how they work, among others.
