Brussels has become the 'capital' of Europe and its status as a political, economic, and diplomatic nerve center is set to assume ever greater importance as the European Union grows in depth and breadth and as the city continues to serve as the headquarters site for key regional and international agencies, including the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, United Nations organizations, multinational businesses, lobbying firms, governmental groups, and nongovernmental organizations. A sourcebook on the city, therefore, is important for all those studying about, residing in, or traveling to Brussels, Belgium, Europe, and the North Atlantic region. Historical Dictionary of Brussels is the first comprehensive, English-language reference work that offers readers a concise review of the history of one of Europe's centrally important cities. The leading places, personalities, events, and institutions that have shaped civic life in the capital of Belgium since its earliest beginnings are covered in more than 600 dictionary entries. An introductory essay, chronology, and an extensive bibliography are also included. Students, academics, professionals in the public and private sectors, residents, and visitors will find this an essential reference.
