Mittelmeerland: An Urban Portrait of the Mediterranean

Hardback
The Mediterranean Sea not only separates two geographic continents, but has always been a complex crossroads between divergent social, economic, and political spheres. Mittelmeerland examines this many-sided region, showing how current and future developments and challenges manifest themselves here on both land and water. The book investigates on ten port cities: Alexandria, Algiers, Barcelona, Beirut, Dubrovnik, Haifa, Istanbul, Marseille, Tangier, and Tripolis. An essay provides an overview of the cartographic history of the Mediterranean region, and numerous drawings visualize the spatial transformation processes and territorial relationships between water, land, and ports.
