Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a very nicely-crafted book with beautiful photography. Overall, it is full of good information. The best sections are those on music and the arts; the weakest are those addressing history and politics. For instance, Germany's two revolutions (1848 and 1918), as well as all of the struggles between the left and the right during the Weimar time, both of which are extremely important in understanding German history, are not even mentioned. Throughout the book, there are quite a number of mistakes and omissions. One example is the caption to a picture of the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, which states that it is a favorite stop for tourist cruises on the Rhine; however, the Rhine is about 100 miles away from this castle. Another picture caption identifies a building as the headquarters of Jena; however, Jena is the city in which the building is located. The building itself is the headquarters of "Jenoptik." In a discussion of infrastructure, the impressive and much-used railroad system is not even mentioned as a mode of transportation. Only two pictures in the book show non-white people, while, in reality, Germany has a large multicultural population. Male artist Bernd Koberling is identified as a "she." These are only a few of the inaccuracies in this book. In spite of mistakes such as these, the book has much to offer if used with care. This is a volume in the "Cultures of the World," series. 2004, Marshall Cavendish/Benchmark Books, Ages 10 to 15.
