Reviews

“To my knowledge there is no recent work in the English language on Switzerland that is as encompassing and up-to-date, even including the latest Swiss referendum concerning their association with the European Union. This alone makes the volumes a worthwhile acquisition. But there are other reasons as well. . . . encompassing without having been over-done, academic without being pedantic, panoramic without losing sight of detail, and detailed without becoming boring. It is a positive addition to any library as well as a resource book for institutions concerned with other cultures and countries.” – Dr. Kurt Wallat
