*Read Book ⚶ Swiss History In A Nutshell ⚥ Swiss History in a Nutshell gives you an easy to read insight into the most fascinating moments in Switzerland s rich and colourful history from its cavemen to its conquests, foundation, growth, independence and prosperity Switzerland s surprising past as a leading military power in Europe how Swiss democracy matured through several revolutions the origins of Swiss cultural differences and how they were overcome to create a stable federal republic how Switzerland s direct democracy, consensus politics and legendary good industrial relations were achieved Cartoons naughty and nice illustrate this kaleidoscope of key events that have created Switzerland as it is today fun in history Written in a very straightforward style with a subtle dash of eye winking thrown in The design style may give the impression that this book is humoristic or lightweight, but in fact it is very thorough I learned a good deal. This was lent to me as I am trying to learnabout the country I have been living in for over 20 years This was quite fun and certainly entertaining also to a certain extent quite educational A nice switch from theacademic and denser descriptions of how the parliament works and the various branches of the government. I really like this series but I feel like the subject matter of this one doesn t lend itself as well to the bullet point and short format that is used in these books Still very interesting and a nice, short summary of the most important historical developments in Switzerland
