Summary:Like many coastal cities, Alexandria must deal with the problems arising from competition and conflict over limited resources. However, that which sets Alexandria apart is a conflict between Alexandria today and the city that Alexandria has been, i.e. the archaeological remains of its past. Must antiquities conservation give way to urban renewal? 27 contributions from relevant disciplines open the way to a solution allowing Alexandria to harmonize its past and its present and thus weave a unified vision of its future.
