Sample text

Over schnapps I asked him why. ” The abiding loyalty of such men evokes images of feudal society; so do the customs of their employers. The smokestack barons act like barons. The men build castles and keep to themselves, and the women behave like ladies of the manor, visiting sick dependents and contributing to charities. Bertha Krupp was famous for her good works. W hen fatally stricken by a heart attack, she was putting on her hat, preparing to visit the widow of a Kruppianer,28 Despite its prominence, the Ruhr is a tiny fief, a mere scar on the map of the continent.
