With no apparent sense of humour and their excessive speed when securing sunloungers, the German people and their country have had a terrible reputation among the British since time immemorial (or 1914). So, going where very few travel-writers and holidaymakers have gone before, Ben Donald has visited Germany in order to overturn stereotypes and, at the same time, fall back in love with travel. From the massed ranks on the nudist beaches of Germany's north coast (they have a reputation for liking uniform, but they'd much rather be naked), via intimate encounters in the steam-rooms of Baden-Baden and the brothels of Hamburg (where he makes his excuses and leaves), to the rite of passage that is wearing Lederhosen to the Oktoberfest (which takes place in September), the author has put his body and his dignity on the line to get beneath the skin of this most maligned of countries. He even goes to see a German stand-up comedian. In - where else? - England. And what emerges is a Germany that will surprise many who thought they knew the country and its people; an eye-opener in other words - especially those nudist beaches.

The Environmental Movement In Germany

"German environmentalism did not begin with the emergence of the Green Party in the 1970s. As this book shows, an active environmental movement has existed in Germany for more than a century. Raymond H. Dominick III documents the many so-called NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) protests, in which neighbors banded together to try to halt the environmental destruction. He also chronicles the origins and evolution of Germany's long-lived conservation societies. Using their forgotten newsletters and archives, Dominick reconstructs the agendas, tactics, and influence of these groups from their formation around the beginning of the twentieth century until the early 1970s. He finds that in Germany, nature has found defenders among persons whose politics range from conservative to socialist and whose social standing ranges from the Kaiser to factory workers. Dominick carefully explores the intellectual and organizational ties between the conservationists and the Nazis. He concludes with a look at today's Green movement and its connection with earlier ideologies of conservation and environmentalism." --book jacket.
