Englische Parlamentsromane als realistische Einblicke in die Begriffswelt der Politiker

This review recommends parliamentary novels and political thrillers as helpful for interpreters, if only in small talk. Their reading is enjoyable too. These books are showing the world of politicians, civil servants, journalists, and spin-doctors at parliament and in election campaigns. These fictions offer insights, how they live and act, think and speak, how they are using words, which say nothing, or the opposite, their terminology, idioms, and abbreviations. This criticism says in general, there are Oldies but Goldies. In addition it suggests movies and TV series from the UK and USA.
