This volume brings together two very popular and active research fields: Swiss Studies and Intercultural Studies. It includes contributions on the movement of ideas, literatures, and individuals from one culture to another or one language to another, and the ways in which they have been either assimilated or questioned. All of the writers explore this general theme; some come from a literary angle, some look at linguistic inventiveness and translation, whilst others study the problems faced when crossing geographical and cultural borders or presenting ideas which do not `travel¿ well. By emphasising the connections, borrowings and mutual influences between Switzerland and other countries such as Germany, Hungary, France, the UK, and the Americas, the articles reaffirm the importance for Switzerland of intellectual openness and cultural exchange. Barbara Burns is Senior Lecturer in German at the University of Glasgow. She has published books and articles on a number of nineteenth-century German writers including Theodor Storm, Detlev von Liliencron, Louise von François and Adolf Müllner, and also has an interest in Swiss Studies, in particular the work of Eveline Hasler on which she has recently been publishing. She is Germanic Editor of the MHRA journal The Year¿s Work in Modern Language Studies. Joy Charnley has co-edited eight volumes of essays on Swiss literatures and history with Malcolm Pender and in 1996 they co-founded the Centre for Swiss Cultural Studies in Glasgow. She has written books and articles on French-speaking Swiss authors such as Yvette Z¿Graggen, Alice Rivaz, Anne-Lise Grobéty, Anne Cuneo, Janine Massard and Amélie Plume.

In 1929, at a youth summit in the Weimar Republic, a group of young Americans meet on a remote mountaintop. Their shifting alliances, rivalries and sexual intrigues foreshadow the turmoil and violence that will soon engulf Europe. Fifteen years later, these men and women are suddenly reunited as one of them discovers an incendiary document from Heinrich Himmler, offering proof of Hitler’s Final Solution. A journey from the confusions of youth into the chaos of war, Another Green World reaches from the last shimmering summer before the Great Depression into the darkest precincts of the twentieth century.

Crossing Paths, Crossing Borders tells the story of a journey through 25 countries, as Simon Duffin and his wife Anita decide to emigrate to Australia from the UK, but do it the long, slow way, using buses, trains, ferries, motorbikes, shared taxis and the occasional short hop flight. It tells of the people they met on the road, from the Red Army veteran in North Ossetia whose brother may have met Anita’s grandfather, to the PR manager of the Indonesia Tea Guild; from survivors of Pol Pot’s regime in Cambodia to two likely lads in Azerbaijan. It shows how tricky land border crossings can be, with a cage to herd people into Iran, secret police interviews as they left Chechnya and official ‘overtime’ payments to Malaysian border guards. But the journey also reveals that the best insights into exotic communities can often come with the most banal experiences: a visit to the hospital, the post office, the cinema, or even having a cup of coffee or tea. Simon and Anita are not grey nomads, nor are they gap year backpackers. They wanted above all to show that an adventure like this is possible also for people in the middle of their life journey, looking to stay out of trouble and keep costs to a reasonable level. Some may be inspired to try something similar. Others may enjoy the tale vicariously from the safety and comfort of their sofa.
