Donald G. Daviau - Austrian Writers and the Anschluss: Understanding the Past -- Overcoming the Past
"This series of essays attempts to revise the widespread view of Austria as the ""first victim of Hitler"" and thus place the events of the 1930s and the Anschluss of March 11, 1938 into a more accurate perspective. The articles fall into three groups: those dealing with events leading up to the Anschluss, those concerned with the Anschluss directly, and those presenting the retrospective views of contemporary authors toward the Anschluss. The presentations make clear how the Nazi takeover was prepared and how the political events of the 1930s and the Anschluss still influence contemporary Austrian society adversely.
""The twenty-one essays, augmented by an introduction by the editor. . . open up an abundance of informative insights into Austrian literature of the 30s all the way to present-day attempts to overcome the past."" Germanistik"
