In this highly acclaimed and entertaining book, already "among the
touchstones of the new travel writing" ("Newsweek"), one of West
Germany's leading authors takes us on an insider's tour of Europe
in the recent past. Focusing on Italy, Poland, Hungary, Sweden,
Spain, and Portugal, he describes how Europe has been moving toward
a new identity.
Enzensberger makes a witty and knowledgeable traveling companion,
delving into surprising corners and byways--from the back alleys of
Budapest to the halls of the Italian mint--and striking up
conversations with everyone from bankers to revolutionaries,
astrologers to apparatchiks. In the process, he suggests that
Europe's strength lies increasingly in embracing diversity and
improvisation, not bigness and regimentation. He enables us to see
with fresh eyes one of the most exciting parts of the world today.
