Voltaire's Coconuts or Anglomania in Europe, Buruma, Ian
14 Buruma, Ian Voltaire's Coconuts or Anglomania in Europe
London Weidenfeld & Nicolson 1999 0297643126 / 9780297643128 First British Hard Cover Near Fine Good Octavo

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."
