Meh. The Germans were missing throughout the book. Compare it with the opening of the Civilizing Process and anyone would see the difference.
But this is an interesting topic and really stirred up my memory a little bit. Should write something on it before the end of the year. Perhaps as a prologue of some overdue big deal I'm planning.
