The Netherlands below sea-level

The Netherlands is well known for being partly below sea-level. The sea is kept at bay with dikes, polders, mills, sturdy dams and storm surge barriers. But how does it all work? How did a country manage to flourish under such circumstances?

Photographs and explanations

The Dutch and their Delta consists of striking photographs and interesting, easy to understand explanations about developments in the past, the present and the future. In its pages you will find many fascinating insights on how a society can function below sea level, from the merit of wooden shoes to the grand structures that regulate the water level.

Please note: Competition winners are announced on the closing date. Each winner will receive one copy of The Dutch and their Delta. Remember to check this page or your IamExpat inbox to see if you've been selected!
