Austria has produced some of the world’s finest composers, dazzled us with an imperial Baroque architecture, and led the way with groundbreaking psychoanalysis. It has taught us to waltz, defined what a real coffee house is, and given us one of Europe’s most popular winter playgrounds. All this from one small nation, roughly the size of South Carolina. Historically the country was a land of transit along the Danube route, and the meeting of Germanic, Mediterranean, and Eastern European peoples helped to shape the Austrians of today. They have turned their heritage and culture to good advantage, developed new high-tech industries, established relationships with their former Communist neighbors as well as their EU partners, and have enjoyed a small economic miracle. Culture Smart! Austria describes the real people in the picture postcard, offering key insights into everyday Austrian life and equipping you to discover for yourself the many qualities of this lively people.
After a long career in educational training in London, Peter Gieler became General Secretary of the Anglo–Austrian Society and editor of the UK quarterly Felix Austria.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Concise & Affordable If ever you are even remotely 'thinking' of visiting another country, this book is a great starting point because it gives the historical background of the country, the relgion, the food, the different ethnic groups, local customs, things to be aware of etc. Really worth the money and the read.
