This book offers a complete overview of the Netherlands' most important invention: the dike. For over 2,000 years, dikes have kept the country from flooding. What began with mounds and culverts is now a network of more than 22,500 kilometres of dikes, dams and dike relics. They're the framework of the Dutch landscape, and are justly celebrated in this remarkably packaged title.
