A sweeping study of the Swiss character and an examination of how Switzerland, alone in western Europe, resisted centralization of its state and economy and membership in the European Union. Its unique institutions, direct democracy, absence of strikes, communal autonomy and four national languages make it unique, but can it last? Through lucid descriptions of history, politics, religion, and culture, this book captures what it means to be Swiss. Illustrated with black-and-white photos and maps.
