Man: Crown of creation or horror of the ecosystem? How have we, Homo Sapiens, managed to win the struggle of the six human species for survival? Why did our ancestors,who were once hunter-gatherers, settle, farm, and found cities and kingdoms? Why did we begin to believe in gods, in nations, in human rights? Why do we trust in money, books and laws and submit to bureaucracy, timetables and consumption? And has all this made us happier over the millennia? A hundred thousand years ago, Homo sapiens was an insignificant animal that lived inconspicuously in a remote corner of the African continent. Our ancestors shared the planet with at least five other human species, and the role they played in the ecosystem was no greater than that of gorill.

7. Small linguistic atlas of German-speaking Switzerland

The Kleine Sprachatlas der deutschen Schweiz clearly shows the diversity of the Swiss dialect landscape and tells of the history and origin of the words. If youwant to find out more about the great differences between the dialects in this small country, or if you want to find out more about the linguistic raft of expressions in the mountainous regions of Graubünden, Upper Valais, Eastern Switzerland, the Jura Mountains in Basel, German-Freiburg or the Bernese Oberland, for example, the new book in its handy format and with 120 coloured language cards offers highly informative and often surprising discoveries.
It is no coincidence that dictionaries, language histories and publications on special languages and dialects are very popular in our time: the great interest in languages, in the spoken and written word documents the emotional attachment of people to the idiom of their origin. In a society that has never been as mobile as it is today, the linguistic landscape suddenly gains tremendous emotional significance as a form of identity-finding.
Whereas language atlases have hitherto been accessible to only a few specialists, the Kleiner Sprachatlas der deutschen Schweiz will provide language enthusiasts and cultural historians, dialect lovers and actual language and culture tourists with a highly informative and easy-to-read guide to the German-speaking dialects of Switzerland.
