The FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK BOOK OF YEARONE country, four languages, 26 cantons, and 7.5 million people (but only 80% of them Swiss): there is nowhere else in Europe, like it.The Swiss can be almost 400 km from the drop of sea water station, but it is an island in the centre of Europe.Welcome to the island’s coastlineSwitzerland Watching is a fascinating journey around Europe is more individual and misunderstood country.From Heidi’s research and finding the best chocolate to relive a bloody past and the exploration of an uncertain future, Diccon Bewes proves that there is more Switzerland than banks and skis, Francs and cheeses.This book dispels myths and unravels the true meaning of Switzerland.In a country of its contradictions, it is an image of the real and normally invisible Switzerland, a place where breathtaking landscapes form a nation that is not only a tour itinerary, and where tradition is as important as innovation.It is also the story of its people, who have more power than politicians, but cannot speak to each other in the same language and who have more weapons per capita than the people of Iraq.As for the bosses, well, not all cheese has holes, cuckoo clocks are not Swiss and trains are not always to run exactly on time.
