    Dear Mr. Kundnani,
    I just wanted to send you a short note of the most heartfelt congratulations to your fine book Utopia or Auschwitz: Germany’s 1968 generation and the Holocaust. It is a really important work that — I hope — will make its mark that it so richly deserves.
    I am particularly pleased and honored that you obviously found some of my own work on the German Left of importance to yours.
    That is always delightful for ANY author to experience.
    With all good wishes
    Andy Markovits

    Dear Mr Kundnani
    I just read your paper on German geo-economic power in the Washington Quarterly and find your analysis outstanding. Much has been written about the subject in the past few months, but your background and intellectual perspective provide valuable insights. Keep it up.
    Perhaps true EU-great power thinkers should switch their workplace from the Brussels eurokratia to the Berlin Republic…
    Yours sincerely,
    Jonathan van Blaaderen
