Description

Raw data is bewildering by itself, it means nothing, it scares and confuses. Human intellect rationalises the immense continuum of its surroundings by means of categorisations, tables, and timelines. With this concept in mind, this book represents a challenging proposal: it is the attempt to find a cultural pattern for each country of the EU stated on the distinctiveness of the statistics, the arbitrariness of the samples and the persistency of the stereotypes. The rigorous approach treats the supposedly familiar, the obvious, and the obviously curious, in the same way. This book is meant as a search for the hidden and the subtle, setting out on a quest for a bird's eye view, and as a way to heed details, however small. Geo-graphic Europe is a book filled with dazzling trivia and curiosities; it embraces our national identities - in their economical, cultural and political aspects - and delivers them in a fun, informative and immediate way.
