In 'De ruimtemakers. Projectontwikkelaars en de Nederlandse binnenstad 1950-1980', Tim Verlaan (ASH, History of Archtiecture) analyses the conflict between private developers, local officials, and citizens in determining the redevelopment of central areas in several Dutch conurbations. His book offers new perspectives on the ever-present issue of the right to the city.

The book is a commercial edition of Verlaan's PhD dissertation 'De toekomst van de Nederlandse binnenstad 1960-1978', which he defended in 2016.
