Why the Dutch are Different
Stranded at Schiphol airport, Ben Coates called up a friendly Dutch girl he’d met some months earlier. He stayed for dinner. Actually, he stayed for good. In the first book to consider the hidden heart and history of the Netherlands from a modern perspective, the author explores the length and breadth of his adopted homeland and discovers why one of the world’s smallest countries is also so significant and so fascinating. It is a self-made country, the Dutch national character shaped by the ongoing battle to keep the water out from the love of dairy and beer to the attitude to nature and the famous tolerance.
Ben Coates stammt aus England, lebt aber jetzt in den Niederlanden. „Part national history, part social history, part travelogue. I really enjoyed this book.“ (Leser) (875 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 273 Seiten noch günstig?
