Refuge and reality : Feuchtwanger and the European émigrés in California by Pól Ó Dochartaigh( )

10 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings together papers by scholars from Germany, the USA, France, England and Ireland given at the first International Feuchtwanger Conference, held in Los Angeles in 2003. Some of Lion Feuchtwanger's novels from his exile in the United States are analyzed here, as are the lives of Lion and Marta Feuchtwanger and their contacts in the German emigre world in California. In addition, two papers focus on aspects of Bertolt Brecht's and Alfred Doblin's lives as emigrants in California. This volume is of interest to students of exile studies, of German refuge in the USA and of modern German literature."--BOOK JACKET

34 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Americanization and anti-Americanism : the German encounter with American culture after 1945 by Alexander Stephan( Book )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents Germany as a case study of the impact of American culture throughout a period characterized by a totalitarian system, two unusually destructive wars, massive ethnic cleansing, and economic disaster. Drawing on examples from history, culture studies, film, radio, and the arts, the authors explore the political and cultural parameters of Americanization and anti-Americanism, as reflected in the reception and rejection of American popular culture and, more generally, in European-American relations in the "American Century.""--Jacket
The author's dimension : selected essays by Christa Wolf( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Author's Dimension finally makes Christa Wolf's critical writing available in English. Readers of her fiction will recognize her elegant and demanding prose and the passion with which she continually examines the individual's, in particular the writer's, relationship to his or her society. But this collection also reveals the way in which Wolf approaches her art." "Spanning the past three decades, the essays focus primarily on the role of the writer and literature today. Wolf interviews herself on the development of The Quest for Christa T. In a witty and probing essay on reading, she imagines her life without books and removes each layer of literary influence, from Snow White to All Quiet on the Western Front. There are perceptive essays about other writers, including Thomas Mann, Karoline von Gunderrode, Max Frisch, and Ingeborg Bachmann. Finally, the sections "On War and Peace and Politics" and "The End of the German Democratic Republic" demonstrate the ways in which Wolf's political thinking has evolved and cast light on the political situation in East Germany prior to German reunification." "With its impassioned celebration of literature, this collection will interest not just those already familiar with Wolf's work but anyone engaged in the acts of writing and reading today."--BOOK JACKET
"Communazis" : FBI surveillance of German emigré writers by Alexander Stephan( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stephan sets these activities in historical contest and discusses the widespread xenophobia and paranoia that surrounded Nazism and Communism, which were frequently conflated in the public imagination. The author illuminates not only the relationship between German anti-Nazis and U.S. politics of the period but also between intellectuals and the modern surveillance state."--Jacket

Speculations about Jakob and other writings by Uwe Johnson( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like many writers and intellectuals of the 20th century, Uwe Johnson (1934-84) had throughout his life been in conflict with the norms of his society. Speculations about Jakob, Johnson's second novel, could not be published in 1950s East Germany, which in part prompted his move to the West. Johnson's most important work, the demanding Anniversaries tetralogy - which is excerpted in the present volume - is critical of the Vietnam War and racial segregation in the US, as well as the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. Also included in this volume is a new translation of "How Anniversaries Came to Be Written" and "Trip into the Blue, 1960.""--Jacket
