Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended reading for a Masters degree I am doing. Whilst it is a scholarly piece of work, it is also a testimony to poor proof-reading, littered as it is with mistakes. In particular the work has many examples of "Germanglish", the German equivalent of "Franglais". I do wish that, prior to publication, the author had submitted the work to a native English speaker with a good command of German, so that it could have been proof-read and corrected. The individual chapters are set out numerically, e.g. " Of Norse Stock - Constructions of Ancestry" on page 289; and I find this very off-putting: whilst the work originated as a doctoral thesis, it is now published as a BOOK. It is such a shame that the undoubted erudition of this work has been spoiled by silly errors of grammar, punctuation and spelling. As for the title: it doesn't exactly make the prospective reader want to tear it off the shelf and start reading it. John Scott.
