Die Beiträge spiegeln die universelle Bedeutung der jüdisch-diasporischen Geschichtserfahrung in der Moderne. Mit neuen Perspektiven zur Ideen- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte, zu Politik, Literatur und Migration entwerfen sie ein vielfältiges Bild einer integrierten jüdischen Geschichtsschreibung. Die Autorinnen und Autoren nutzen dabei interdisziplinäre und transnationale Zugänge und betten die Geschichte der Judenheiten in den historischen Kontext ihrer Mehrheitsgesellschaften ein. Der Band liefert so neue Forschungsergebnisse, die Erkenntnisse für die jüdischen Studien ebenso wie die allgemeine Geschichte Europas, Amerikas und des Nahen Ostens bereithalten.

Zwischen Flucht und Arbeitsmigration: sudetendeutsche Flüchtlinge in Schweden. Nach dem Münchner Abkommen 1938 fanden viele verfolgte sudetendeutsche Sozialdemokraten und Kommunisten Zuflucht in Skandinavien, insbesondere in Schweden. Mit dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs und der Vertreibung der Deutschen aus der Tschechoslowakei verloren nicht nur die meisten der Flüchtlinge ihre Option auf Rückkehr. Bis Mitte der 1950er Jahre folgten ihnen nun weitere sudetendeutsche Immigranten. Rudolf Tempsch zeigt am Beispiel der insgesamt etwa 5.000 nach Schweden geflohenen Sudetendeutschen zum einen, wie politische Flüchtlinge während des Kriegs empfangen wurden und wie sie sich an die schwedische Gesellschaft anpassten, zum anderen aber auch, wie nach dem Krieg die ersten Arbeitsmigranten angeworben und aufgenommen wurden. Die Aufnahme der Sudetendeutschen in Schweden stellt ein besonders erfolgreiches Beispiel für die Integration von Migranten in die Gesellschaft des skandinavischen Landes dar, das von den regierenden Sozialdemokraten in diesen Jahren im Sinne ihres Ideals eines wohlfahrtsstaatlichen "Volksheims" gestaltet wurde.

The Morgenthau Plan, the Allies' post-war policy that preceded the Marshall Plan, devastated what remained of Germany after the war was officially over. Was this economic idiocy OCo or intentional destruction of a surrendered country? The current work documents how the Morgenthau Plan was designed to completely destroy the German economy, enslave millions of her citizens, and exterminate as many as 20 million people. John Dietrich demonstrates this through countless documented quotes from official sources. What had changed by 1947, and why was the Morgenthau Plan finally rejected, swept under the carpet, and radically reversed? Where are today's professional historians and why is this stunning episode in US postwar policy minimized or ignored?"

Victor Gollancz was a teacher, publisher, author and campaigner who spent his life passionately trying to make people see the truth as he saw it. If it's as a publisher that he is remembered above all, nonetheless in many ways he epitomised the social conscience of the mid-twentieth century: he founded the Left Book Club, Save Europe Now and the Campaign Against Capital Punishment. For this biography, first published in 1987, Ruth Dudley Edwards had access to all the Gollancz family and firm papers, and produced an honest, searching work which not only reveals an extraordinary man but throws light on many of the political and social events of his times. 'Frequently gripping and always readable.' John Gross, Observer 'Consistently enthralling and a brilliant achievement.' Hilary Rubinstein, Spectator 'One of the fullest and richest portraits of a contemporary individual we have had.' Anthony Curtis, Financial Times 'I would trust anyone's life to Ruth Dudley Edwards.' Terence De Vere White, Irish Times
