Review:

"A detailed exploration of the reasons for our desire for independence, our sense of respect and our business sense." -- De Volkskrant (Holland)

"Han van der Horst takes a surprised and humourous look at his own people." -- De Telegraaf (Holland)

Synopsis:

Anyone raised in another country who goes to live in the Netherlands soon gets used to it. Just when you think you know and understand the country and its people, something unexpected will happen and you find that you don't. In his successful book 'The Low Sky', historian and publicist Han van der Horst explained not only how Dutch society works, but how it came to be that way. In the process, he sketched the dilemmas and taboos of modern Holland, and offered a run-down of the main themes of public debate. In this book you can see for yourself the Netherlands described so graphically in the first book. And for those who are living under a low sky for the first time, or who still occasionally feel out of place, Han van der Horst provides a brand new commentary, trying once again to make the Netherlands feel familiar to all of us.
