About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers fresh insights on an underexplored moment in intellectual history. The Fruits of Exile casts new light on the history of emigre thinkers escaping from the rise of fascism in Central Europe. Editors Richard Bodek and Simon Lewis, along with an international group of contributors, emphasize the contributions to American and British culture by the European intellectual diaspora of the 1930s through their careful study of artists, scientists, and cultural figures often igred in previous studies of the era. The contributors explore the careers in exile of velists Thomas Mann and Herman Broch; philosophers Karl Mannheim, Walter Kaufmann, and Theodore Ador; artists Joseph Albers and Max Reinhardt; composers Arld Schoenberg and Bela Bartok; and a host of other participants in the pre-World War II exodus from Central Europe. The essays enhance understanding of the diverse range of exile experience by analyzing larger groups of exiles than in earlier studies, by broadening the geographic area examined, and by delving into the initial difficulties these immigrants had in finding acceptance and welcome on foreign soil.
