5.0 out of 5 stars Fine book, June 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An unexpected pleasure, and a very beautiful and well made book. I found this by accident, and I am very happy for that. This should be better known for all Americans, no matter what their brand of religion is.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had read this before going to Rome, May 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is exciting and informative. It should be in the guidebook collection of anyone going to Rome. Reading this has resulted in a decision to travel to Rome again, with eyes open even wider.

obviously designed for another format. Most of the illustrations are cut off. This book had little value for me. I would not recommend it

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointment, to say the least, November 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I started to suspect something was wrong as soon as I took this product out of its box. The sheet metal enclosure was so skimpy that it was hard to even pick it up without denting it. The instructions are obviously a translation, and almost unintelligible. There were NO diagrams or instructions about how to connect this product to a TV. When I finally did get it connected, the screen dialogue on the TV could not be used. No matter what I tried to do, the result was the same: a sign saying that the operation was not available. Nothing worked. I used hours on this, and finally had to give up and send it back. This type of device should be foolproof, and plug and play. This product was neither.

1.0 out of 5 stars very poor quality, October 20, 2012
I was suspicious as soon as I opened the box. The unit is made of extremely thin sheet metal, and is very fragile. The instructions are a very poor translation from some other language, and nearly unintelligible. There is NO diagram giving any indication of how to plug the unit into the TV. The front of the unit is of very poor quality. It was actually hard to believe that it was new. The remote only worked when held within a foot of the unit. When I finally got a signal up on the TV screen, it was useless. Everything I clicked on would send up a notice that it was not available. I wasted hours on what should have been a simple "plug and play" installation. I finally gave up and returned the unit. This unit is the embodiment of the concept of Cheezy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for Carl Dreyer and Kaj Munk's play, July 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book was a rare treat. I have been interested in Kaj Munk's plays, and the films of Carl Dreyer, for many years. Jan Wahl has written an interesting book that covers both subjects, as well as being an interesting account of his own experiences as a young man in 1955 when Dreyer filmed "Ordet" (The Word). I was familiar with Jan Wahl from his children's books, but had no idea that he had been involved with Carl Dreyer, or had lived in Denmark for a time. This book is a great resource for anyone interested in these subjects. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An important period in Danish history, May 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book gives a great introduction to a little known or understood period in Danish history, and one that is generally not available to non Danish readers. Also, the entire problematic of how a government, or a people, should react to invasion and occupation, is brought to light.
This material is still relevant today. Just a glance at the daily headlines will show that the same problems are being experienced today.

5.0 out of 5 stars History, and still relevant, January 22, 2009
I have a personal interest in this era of history, mostly concerning the Danish resistance movement against the Nazi occupation. This book covers the parallel Norwegian resistance. It is not only a personal history, but also an in depth treatment about how the Norwegian resistance developed, but, most sadly, also how many caved in to the Nazis, and preferred to "get along", and make a profit at the same time, and how some actively suppoprted the Nazi take over. This happened in Denmark as well. The significant role of some members of the clergy in their refusal to toe the Nazi line has a close parallel in the Danish movement.
I was, frankly, surprised at the willingness of the author to say things that most people would prefer not to hear, or to remember, and to explain the unsavory habit of many people in power to twist any situation around to suit their own narrow needs. This still happens today, and anyone reading this book will have gained some insight into the "Realpolitik" of compromise, greed, and the cowardice that greases the slippery slope into treachery and treason against ones's own people.
