This book describes everyday life in three ‘normal’ neighborhoods in the Netherlands, built in different periods of twentieth-century urban development. Based on these detailed descriptions, this book demonstrates how research into the everyday can be applied. At the same time, it is a plea for a different spatial and social neighborhood policy: less intervention, less motivated by politics and policy, more attention for the vitality of residents. An inspiring book for urban developers, local politicians, and professionals working in the social sector.
