Rapunzel's Children: The making of democracy in Germany
by Tim Mellage
Publisher: Smashwords 2014
Number of pages: 87
Tim Mellage's and Sarah Ledbetter's interpretation of the fairy tale Rapunzel is such a work of true originality. It provides a fascinating method to understanding the social developments of Germany over the past five hundred years -- starting with the Reformation of 1517, through the dark years of two World Wars, to the modern democratic state that we know today -- based on the premonitions and symbols contained within the fairy tale.
