London Weidenfeld & Nicolson 1999 0297643126 / 9780297643128 First British Hard Cover Near Fine Good Octavo 
326 pp. Dustjacket presents as unclipped, bright, clean, uncreased; but there are two closed tears on the back panel. Faint yellowing to edges of text block and outer page margins. All else as new. Sources; Index. "In this brilliant and elegantly written book Buruma examines European ideas about Englishness and what Europeans admired or loathed about Britain. Voltaire wondered why British laws could not be planted in France, or even Serbia, like the precious seeds of coconut trees. Karl Marx thought the English were too stupid to start a revolution; Goethe worshipped Shakespeare; Baron de Coubertin's idea of the modern Olympic Games was inspired by 'Tom Brown's School Days'; Theodor Herzl's dream of the Jewish state was fuelled by his love of British aristocracy; and the German Kaiser was convinced thazt Britain was run by Jews."
