Barbarians, Civilized People and Bulgarians
Bernard Wasserstein. Oxford: Oxford University Press, In the final chapter of Harry Mulisch's powerful and pithy novel The Assault De Aanslag , the protagonist Anton Steenwijk finds himself caught up in a massive antiwar demonstration in Amsterdam.

A barbarian is a human who is perceived to be either uncivilized or primitive. The designation is usually applied as a generalization based on a popular stereotype ; barbarians can be members of any nation judged by some to be less civilized or orderly such as a tribal society but may also be part of a certain "primitive" cultural group such as nomads or social class such as bandits both within and outside one's own nation. Alternatively, they may instead be admired and romanticised as noble savages. In idiomatic or figurative usage, a "barbarian" may also be an individual reference to a brutal, cruel, warlike, and insensitive person.

Беккер достал из кармана бумажник. - Конечно, я буду счастлив тебе заплатить. - И он начал отсчитывать купюры. Глядя, как он шелестит деньгами, Меган вскрикнула и изменилась в лице, по-видимому ложно истолковав его намерения.
