Miranda Seymour, the UK author who is a Consulting Editor for Interlitq, has been cited in “Falling for Germany” (Harold James, European Voice, 05.11.13):

Even in the habitually Eurosceptical United Kingdom, Prime Minister David Cameron has sought to boost his international credibility by highlighting his close ties with Merkel, rather than by emphasising the UK’s ‘special relationship’ with the United States. Revealingly, the writer Miranda Seymour’s recently published book “Noble endeavours” reminds Britain of the centuries-old love affair between Germany and England. Maybe the royal family will go back to styling itself the House of Hanover?
