Weimar and Now: German Cultural Criticism #16: Exiled in Paradise Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A brilliant look at the writers, artists, scientists, movie directors, and scholars—ranging from Bertolt Brecht to Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt, Thomas Mann, and Fritz Lang—who fled Hitler's Germany and how they changed the very fabric of American culture. In a new postscript, Heilbut draws attention to the recent changes in reputation and image that have shaped the reception of the German exiles.

Synopsis:

"I am struck by the rich, dense, solid quality of the work. It never falls into the anecdotal (which would have tempted a lesser historian) and, without sacrificing the individual and the individual groups, arrives nonetheless at an overall view of the drama of exile."—Marguerite Yourcenar
