'A great subject for a cultural anthropologist and Bewes is a perfect guide' Financial Times, Book of the Year A brand new edition of the international bestseller, with new sections on the Swiss elections, the Swiss citizenship test and how Brexit has affected Switzerland. One country, four languages, 26 cantons, and 7.5 million people (but only 80% of them Swiss): there's nowhere else in Europe like it. Switzerland may be almost 400 km from the nearest drop of seawater, but it is an island at the centre of Europe. Welcome to the landlocked island. Swiss Watching is a fascinating journey around Europe's most individual and misunderstood country. From seeking Heidi and finding the best chocolate to reliving a bloody past and exploring an uncertain future, Diccon Bewes proves that there's more to Switzerland than banks and skis, francs and cheese. This book dispels the myths and unravels the true meaning of Swissness.

When someone who is an immigrant to Britain wants to obtain UK Citizenship, after at least five years in the country, they have to jump through all sorts of hoops, including sassing an English test, as well as passing a test of multiple-choice questions, based on an official Home Office handbook called Life in the UK. Unless you have studied and memorised that book, you would probably fail, even if you're British born and bred. In a recent poll, 51% of British 18-24 year olds failed to reach the 75% pass level. Sample questions: � Do you know how many members of the Welsh Assembly there are? � How many jury members in a Sheriff Court? � The contents of the 1689 Bill of Rights? � What the central shopping area of most towns is called? (Yes, really!) � Who is/was Richard Arkwright, Sake Dean Mahomet, John Petts, or David Weir? With Brexit and all the talk of sovereignty, the question of what it really means to be British has never been more important, so here is your chance to see how you measure up to what your country (or at least, some Whitehall civil servants) expects you to know. So here are 500 sample questions based on the Life in the UK book, to test yourself, or to play as a quiz with family or friends. The answers will inform, surprise and above all, make you laugh!
