description

The Fruits of Exile casts new light on the history of émigré 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 ignored in previous studies of the era.

The contributors explore the careers in exile of novelists Thomas Mann and Herman Broch; philosophers Karl Mannheim, Walter Kaufmann, and Theodore Adorno; artists Joseph Albers and Max Reinhardt; composers Arnold Schoenberg and Béla Bartók; 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. The fresh insights on this underexplored moment in history illustrate that intellectual careers of the highest order are both personally driven-based strongly on the life of great thinkers and creators-and structurally shaped by local and international patterns of culture.
