How the Dutch Flower Industry Conquered the World
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
Building his account around the world’s largest flower auction, Aalsmeer’s, which is located near Amsterdam, Gebhardt links past and present, petals and painting, colonial trading and the European Union. The resulting book is as unusual as it is ambitious, full of insights into horticulture, the workings of markets, globalization, aesthetics, and Dutch popular culture.
