Well I feared as much...,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Germania: A Personal History of Germans Ancient and Modern (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Who is this guy? He does not speak German, might have been to Germany two or three times and definitely read many history books on Germany. In my view Germania is a bullshit bingo about sterotypes. Germany is the evil twin of the UK. A country too big to be ignored but without it the world wouldn`t miss much. Germany is a cold country with awful food, which is obsessed with the dark ages and a people that suffers from low self-esteem. I would not recommend it as a travel guide or preparation for a trip to Germany at all. I would higly recommend it to everyone who likes to have reassurance on his already negative attitude towards Germany. It comes not as a surprise that German critics praise this book since we always try to be helpful if some one has a laugh at our expense.

Exactly, I found the book to have carefully concocted Anti-Germanism all over it. I found it awful. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who decides to travel to Germany. Unless of course you enjoy to scorn at German culture and European culture as a whole.

Well, I am half German and I have lived in Germany for 30 years. I have found that the greatest anti-Germans are Germans and they are always apologising for their country and comparing it unfavourably with England. If I told you how many people had said to me, when I told them where I am from, that they wish they were English it would shock you. It shocks me!
