Subject: Любителям германизации

я бы выбрал германизацию 

Любителям германизации рекомендую Jānis Rainis "Spēlēju, dancoju" и Ulo Valk, The Black Gentleman: Manifestations of the Devil in Estonian Folk Religion, Folklore Fellows Communications, vol. 127, no. 276. Helsinki: Academia Scientiarum Fennica, 2001.

A peculiar trait in Estonian tradition is that the Devil often takes the shape of a German gentleman. Valk argues that it is possible to speak of a demonization of Germans and landlords already in late medieval Estonia as well as a corresponding "Germanization" of the Devil. These processes, according to Valk, should be understood in connection with Estonians' early and bitter experiences of ruthless landlords.
