Germania free pdf

"Germania" is propelled by a wish to reclaim the brilliant, chaotic, endlessly varied German civilization that the Nazis buried and ruined, and that, since 1945, so many Germans have worked to rebuild. 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, and "a book you will return to time and again" ("The Florida Times-Union").

About Simon Winder

SIMON WINDER has spent far too much time in Germany, denying himself a lot of sunshine and fresh fruit just to write "Germania." He is the author of the highly praised "The Man Who Saved Britain "(FSG, 2006) and works in publishing in London.
