This is a speedy, easy read on a topic that is relevant to world events right now. Could it have been better? Yes. But I enjoyed reading about a topic I thought I knew a lot about (the history of the cultural north) retold in an anthropological and culturally relevant fashion. I've seen some issues with the author's German-focused stance. He isn't American, and the book doesn't have an American focus. This could be annoying if you were looking for more of how this impacts America directly but, as someone of German heritage, I enjoyed hearing about all of this through a more global lens. It was a pleasant break from my usual.
