Swiss Watching: Inside Europe's Landlocked Islandby Diccon Bewes
Swiss Watching is a light-hearted yet revealing journey around Europe's most individual country. From seeking Heidi and finding the best chocolate to reliving a bloody past and exploring an uncertain future, Swiss Watching proves that there's more to Switzerland than banks, skis, francs and cheese. One country, four languages, 26 cantons, and 7.5 million people (only 80% of whom are Swiss): there's nowhere else in Europe like it. Switzerland may be surrounded by land, but it is an island at the center of Europe. Welcome to the landlocked island.

The author was a little too self-absorbed, his humor a little too juvenile, and his progressivism a little too smug for me to care to keep this volume on my shelf.
