Simon Wilder - Germania (In Wayward Pursuit of the Germans & Their History) (2nd Hand Hardback)
Winder's book is propelled by a wish to reclaim the brilliant, chaotic, endlessly varied German civilisation that the Nazis buried and ruined, and that, since 1945, so many Germans have worked to rebuild.
Germania is a very funny book on serious topics - how we are misled by history, how we twist history, and how sometimes it is best to know no history at all.
It is a book full of curiosities: odd food, castles, mad princes, fairy tales, and horse-mating videos.
It is about the limits of language, the meaning of culture, and the pleasure of townscape.
