Why The Germans Do It Better: Notes From A Grown-Up Country

Brand: Đang cập nhật   |   Status: Hết hàng

"Kampfner’s fine Why the Germans Do It Better stands in a long line of appreciative British studies of Germany. For many Edwardians, the Wilhelmine Reich had the better army, the more serious universities and science, the more ruthless industrialists, and was altogether a more advanced nation. They were wrong about that..." - The Guardian

Emerging from a collection of city states 150 years ago, no other country has had as turbulent a history as Germany or enjoyed so much prosperity in such a short time frame. Today, as much of the world succumbs to authoritarianism and democracy is undermined from its heart, Germany stands as a bulwark for decency and stability. Mixing personal journey and anecdote with compelling empirical evidence, this is a critical and entertaining exploration of the country many in the West still love to hate. Raising important questions for our post-Brexit landscape, Kampfner asks why, despite its faults, Germany has become a model for others to emulate, while Britain fails to tackle contemporary challenges. Part memoir, part history, part travelogue, Why the Germans Do It Better is a rich and witty portrait of an eternally fascinating country.
