He does it again: In the wake of his international success "Swiss Watching", Englishman Diccon Bewes takes us on a journey to the beginning of tourism in Switzerland 150 years ago. Yet his book is much more than mere historical travel writing, since Bewes' keen eye for detail unravels the myriad ways in which Switzerland and tourism have changed since the Victorians' first tour to the Alpine Republic. Bewes explains how the British made Switzerland, how Switzerland affected organized tourism, illustrates that Switzerland's riches are fairly recent and how manners and style have changed. This book is informative, witty and funny and should be on everybody's bedside table.
