Deutschland verstehen

Posted by Lucas—08/2012

Deutschland verstehen provides an in-depth exploration of Germany that is as entertaining as it is educational. Buy the book through our webshop and receive a complimentary A1-size poster by illustrator Frank Höhne.

Deutschland verstehen not only tells of Prussians and Goethe, but also of Love Parade and Oktoberfest. It draws the family tree of the Red Army Faction, examines Germany's relationship to nuclear power, and looks at the impact of the country’s business activities around the world; it compares apples with potatoes and the Federal Republic of Germany with the former GDR. The result: infotainment at the highest level.

Deutschland verstehen bietet eine kurzweilige Bildungsreise durch unser Land. Die im Buch versammelten Schaubilder zeigen Kanzleramt, Reichstag und Gorch Fock von innen und erzählen von Preußen, Goethe, Kernkraftwerken, Loveparade und Oktoberfest. Sie zeichnen Stammbäume der RAF und der Deutschland AG; vergleichen Äpfel mit Kartoffeln, BRD mit DDR und Stefan Raab mit Thomas Gottschalk. Mit Infotainment auf höchstem Niveau ist dieser neuartige Atlas DAS Wimmelbuch für Erwachsene.

 

Exclusive offer for Gestalten webshop customers: Deutschland verstehen book including a complimentary A1-size poster by Berlin-based illustrator Frank Höhne (worth €10).

Unser Webshop Special: Versand mit beigelegtem Poster “Die Welt Aus Deutscher Sicht” von Frank Höhne (auch separat gerollt erhältlich).
