Recognized by historians and politicians as a model for European unity, Switzerland is nonetheless a difficult country to understand as a whole. Whereas individual Swiss cities have strong identities in the international political, cultural, and economic arenas, the country itself seems to be less than the sum of its parts. To capture the elusive spirit of Switzerland, four eminent writers explore the roots of its political unity and cultural diversity in a series of urban portraits. Their observations make for both good storytelling and insightful social commentary. Nicolas Bouvier offers a quick-paced history of Geneva--the city John Calvin had envisioned as a radiating center of godliness, international in its scope and legal in its methods--the home of the Red Cross and the League of Nations and, since 1945, the location of numerous disarmament and diplomatic conferences. Gordon Craig examines Zurich, the city of the militant religious reformer Huldrych Zwingli, whose centralizing political zeal was harnessed by subsequent generations of Zurichers to lead Switzerland in its modernization. Today's economically powerful Zurich is analyzed in terms of its liberal past as a refuge for political activists and artists, and in terms of its current generational divisions on moral and cultural questions. Finally, Lionel Gossman explores the conciliatory Basel of Erasmus, showing how vigorous independence, resourcefulness, and remembrance of its humanist traditions shaped the city's culture and economy. Tying together important themes in the histories of these cities, Carl Schorske focuses his introduction on how Switzerland has capitalized on their cultural differences and refined the art of political negotiation to serve a wide range of civic interests.

Jose Rizal heard about the beauty of Switzerland when he was still in the Philippines as a boy. Then in May of 1887 in Germany, at the age of 25, when the opportunity came for him to travel around Europe with his compatriot-friend Maximo Viola, Rizal did not hesitate to include several weeks in Switzerland in their itinerary. Rizal took account of spending his 26th birthday (June 19) in that country. In fact, Rizal and Viola visited five Swiss cantons: Schaffhausen, Basel, Berne, Lausanne and Geneva in June of that year to learn more about the glorious history of the Swiss people, and find a way to ignite the passion of Filipinos against foreign domination and oppression.

German description: Die von Irene Dingel und Herman Selderhuis versammelten Beitrage widmen sich der europaischen Ausstrahlung des Genfer Reformators Johannes Calvin und den weitgreifenden Wirkungen des Calvinismus. Dabei kommt der Calvinismus als ein landerubergreifendes konfessionelles System in den Blick, dessen Gestaltungskrafte sich sowohl in theologischer als auch in gesellschaftlicher, politischer und kultureller Hinsicht ausserten, mit bestehenden Systemen in Interaktion traten und so wesentlich zur Auspragung des modernen Europa beitrugen. In drei thematischen Schwerpunkten kommen zunachst die Person Calvins und ihre Einflusse in West- und Osteuropa zur Sprache, sodann die durch Vertreibung, Exil und Neuaufbau gepragte Wirklichkeit des fruhneuzeitlichen Calvinismus und schliesslich die in einer spezifischen Spiritualitat und deren Medien Gestalt gewinnende geistige Kraft des Calvinismus. Der Band greift die verschiedenen aktuellen Forschungsdiskurse auf, fuhrt sie unter der Perspektive der europaischen Wirkmachtigkeit des Calvinismus zusammen und eroffnet durch seine Interdisziplinaritat und Internationalitat zugleich neue Blickwinkel, um auf diese Weise impulsgebend auf die Forschung zu wirken.
