Voyage Through the Twentieth Century : A Historian's Recollections and Reflections, Hardback Book

Voyage Through the Twentieth Century : A Historian's Recollections and Reflections Hardback

Description

The account of the author's life, spent between Europe and America, is at the same time an account of his generation, one that came of age between the two World Wars.

Recalling not only circumstances of his own situation but that of his friends, the author shows how this generation faced a reality that seemed fragmented, and in their shared thirst for knowledge and commitment to ideas they searched for cohesiveness among the glittering, holistic ideologies and movements of the twenties and thirties.

The author's scholarly work on the German Resistance to Hitler revealed to him those who maintained dignity and courage in times of peril and despair, which became for him a life's pursuit.

This work is unique in its thorough inclusion of the postwar decades and its perspective from a historian eager to rescue the otherA" Germany-the Germany of the righteous rather than the Holocaust murderers.
