The Armchair Diplomat on Europe Summary


The Armchair Diplomat on Europe: The Ultimate Slackers' Guide to Our Continental Cousins by Melissa Rossi

It happens all the time: you're watching the Champion's League, pondering Robert Kilroy Silk's unnatural glow, reading the latest newspaper debate about EU bendy banana laws, and thinking: what's really going on in Europe? Does anyone actually know what they're talking about? And where are Riga and Vilnius anyway? You needn't worry any more. With this armchair guide you'll discover the strange and fascinating world that calls itself Europe without ever having to leave your own home. There are insights into culture (how to join the Finns beating themselves with birch twigs in the sauna); the lowdown on the people that matter (porn stars turned politicians in Italy); fascinating facts and explanations of historical rifts (and you thought the relationship between Britain and France was bad). You'll find out how to talk like Berlusconi, unravel the workings of the EU and guide yourself from the Baltics to Belgium, Portugal to Poland. The Armchair Diplomat: Europe offers the basics of euro-education for very little pain. Perfect for slackers with a passion for travel.

About Melissa Rossi


Melissa Rossi, author of What Every American Should Know about the Rest of the World, is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in Newsweek, National Geographic Traveller and Esquire. Sent all over Europe for various articles, she has lived in Italy, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands during the past nine years, and is currently settled in Barcelona. The book itself has been written in bars and cafes in six different countries. Motivated by a fear of boredom and an insatiable thirst for knowledge, Melissa Rossi's aim is to engage "the common man" in the geopolitical world. Concerned by the lack of understanding exhibited by all Europeans towards the EU, and frustrated by the EU's determination to talk in its own language, Melissa Rossi set out to bring the dynamic, fascinating - and often bizarre - elements of Europe to life.
