The Port of Rotterdam' presents the past, present and future of this port, which for many is unknown territory. The work on the port is never done. From the standpoints of economics, landscape and logistics, the port is described and displayed in all its diversity. 0 The book navigates along the places where impressive feats of port engineering are designed, where trends become visible and where the new landscape takes shape. An international comparison places Rotterdam alongside nine other world ports. The book also shows how Rotterdam’s tough image was carefully constructed. From Maasvlakte II to the Fruithavens, from the floating bird sanctuary at De Slufter to the RDM, and from the Botlek to the Kop van Zuid neighbourhood, we are presented with portraits of more than 40 special places, many interviews and port stories; photographs by Jannes Linders and Siebe Swart show the unique and often mesmerizing facets of the harbour landscape.

The phenomenon of international seaport administration is the subject of this book. As a Ph.D.-student at the Delft University of Technology (period 1993 - 1997) I had the opportunity to develop and exercise my hobby on a full time base. The result was a Ph.D.-dissertation which was defended in December 1997. Unfortunately, these research results were published in Dutch while the majority of the interviewees and employees in the world of international seaport administration are English speaking people. Both for the reason of high international relevance of the results I felt the necessity to get this Ph.D.-research translated and published in English. With the excellent help of my promotor Prof.dr. W.G.M. Salet I found Prof.dr. H. van der Wusten prepared to cover this study on international seaport administration in the Kluwer GeoJournal Library series. I thank Mr. Van der Wusten for giving me this opportunity. But also due to the outstanding help of my current employer 'Zeeland Seaports Authority' the funding for the translation became very quickly possible. I thank the Managing Director of Zeeland Seaports Authority, Mr. J.M.H.G. Philippen, and the Commercial Director, Capt. J. Verkiel, for their interest and wonderful help in getting this study translated. And of course my sincere thanks go to Katy Owen who actually made this dream come true.

This volume presents the report of the Pacem in Maribus Conference on Ports as Nodal Points in the Global Transport System held in Rotterdam in August 1990. Ports are one of the principal interfaces between land and sea, and the main entry and exit points in the global transport system which links the world's nations with more than 70 per cent of the Earth's surface. Discussion centred around the following themes: changes in the world economy; developments in technology; ports and the environment; ports as nodal points; the global transport system; developing countries and the cases of ports together with their roles and needs, and finally, the Port of Rotterdam. The book concludes with four recommendations concerning port management and planning, the environment, international co-operation and also suggestions concerning Africa.
