Granta 42 Summary


Granta 42: Krauts! by Edited by Bill Buford

When foreigners' hostels were being burned in Rostock by young neo-Nazi thugs, who were the thousands of middle-aged, middle class Germans standing by, shouting encouragement?

Three years after the fall of the Berlin Wall "Granta 42" looks into the ugly face of nationalism and asks what has happened to our hopes for a new world order.
