Book Recommendation: Amsterdam, A History of the World's Most Liberal City by Russell Shorto

 

Amsterdam, A History of the World's Most Liberal City (2013) is a story of a great city that has influenced the world. The author, Russell Shorto, also wrote The Island at the Center of the World, which I have previously recommended. If you enjoy history, I recommend this book for your reading list.
