Culture and Development

Another critical review of Farewell to Alms:
One of my favourite history books is a collection of contemporary letters and reports written during the first half of the nineteenth century about industrial work in German lands. Observers decried how unreliable, slovenly, and undisciplined workers were. Germans had no hope of ever becoming developed!
