Armin Mueller-Stahl, the internationally famous German actor, has long been known as a gifted poet and painter as well. With this sequel to Der wien Vogel fliegen kann and The Blue Cow, we now have yet another one of his political songs, which the artist combines with expressive painting to produce a powerful, overall work of art. The lyrics were written in the mid-1960s. In strongly rhythmic and onomatopoeic words, Mueller-Stahl protested the insanity of the weapons-dealing, warmongering nations. Accompanied by his compelling, expressive, and inventive visuals, the lyrics and illustration combine to form splendid compositions. A pleasure for both the eyes and ears of all generations.

This book is also available in German.
