內容簡介

The Fruits of Exile: Central European Intellectual Immigration to America in the Age of Fascism
In the period between the World Wars, for every Einstein who emigrated to Britain or America, there were hundreds of scientists, writers, academics and artists who found their work disregarded and who faced emotional crises as a result of their displacement. In this volume, Bodek (history, College of Charleston, NC) and Lewis (world literature, College of Charleston, NC) present essays on men who had established international reputations in their fields before being forced to flee Europe. The authors come from a number of disciplines, each bringing their own understanding of the subject to the question of the subjects' life in exile. Social scientists Max Horkheimer and Karl Manmheim and legal theorist Hans Kelsen were not well understood when they applied their theories to other societies. Novelist Hermann Broch was largely ignored: Max Reinhardt was considered pass矇. In a reevaluation of Arnold Schoenberg, Sabine Feisst concludes that he continued to be successful after his arrival in America. Some of the essays discuss the emotional trauma of separation compounded by experiences of violent anti-Semitism. That the exiles often met with more subtle forms of it in the countries that took them in only made the transition worse. This book is a good corrective to the myth of a warm welcome in Britain and America of Jewish intellectuals fleeing fascism. Annotation 穢2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
