Amsterdam : A History of the World's Most Liberal City

Amsterdam : A History of the World's Most Liberal City Amsterdam is not just any city Despite its relative size it has stood alongside its larger cousins - Paris London Berlin - and has influenced the modern world to a degree that few other cities have Sweeping across the city's colourful thousand year history Amsterdam will bring the place to life its sights and smells; its politics and people Concentrating on two significant periods - the late 1500s to the mid 1600s and then from the Second World War to the present Russell Shorto's masterful biography looks at Amsterdam's central preoccupations Just as fin-de-siecle Vienna was the birthplace of psychoanalysis seventeenth century Amsterdam was the wellspring of liberalism and today it is still a city that takes individual freedom very seriously A wonderfully evocative book that takes Amsterdam's dramatic past and present and populates it with a whole host of colourful characters Amsterdam is the definitive book on this great city
