'An entertaining exploration of the truth behind European stereotypes.' - The Irish Times From the bailouts to the Euro-crisis, from the rise of Frau Merkel to the dalliances of the French presidents, Connelly does a brilliant job skewering the lies and truths of European stereotypes. A lot has happened in the nearly five years since Tony Connelly published the first edition of Don't Mention the Wars to great acclaim. In this revised and updated edition, Connelly revisits every chapter and explores the news and the rich parade of events that have happened in that time. Reviews: 'Don't Mention the Wars is a sharply written mediation on the origins of the various peculiarities associated with our European neighbours.' - The Sunday Times 'It is a fascinating, not to say ambitious, journey and one worth taking.' - Des Kenny About the Author: Tony Connelly is Europe Editor for RTÉ News & Current Affairs; he is based in Brussels. He has also reported on conflicts in Rwanda, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebenon, Georgia and Gaza.
