The Belgian. Does he exist? Or are there too many differences amongst the Belgian people? I have always felt like one. Which makes me positively naive. Setting all bias aside, I embarked on a quest. In search of our strengths. In search of the things and people that make us feel proud. In search of those pivotal moments in our history that still bind us together. In search of our peculiarities, including those we would rather sweep under the carpet. This book is the result.
