Clare O'Dea - The Naked Swiss - November 2016

Journalist and author Clare O'Dea told us about her new book, The Naked Swiss: A Nation Behind 10 Myths, which promises to change the way the world thinks about modern Switzerland. In ten fact-based chapters O'Dea dismantles the most positive myths of modern Switzerland (The Swiss are Rich/Brilliant/Have the Perfect Democracy) with the same sharp journalistic eye she assesses the negative one (The Swiss are Sexist/Xenophobic/Helped the Nazis). O'Dea - ten year veteran at Swissinfo, and now Swiss herself - profiles a Switzerland of the twenty-first century: a Switzerland of working mothers, banks gone bankrupt, and multicultural football teams.
