His World War II-era sequence, The World, is a collection of twenty naive poems. Following the war, he served as Polish cultural attache in Paris and Washington, D.C., then in 1951 defected to the West. This nonfiction book, The Captive Mind (1953), became a classic of anti-Stalinism. From 1961 to 1998 he was a professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Berkeley. He became a U.S. citizen in 1970. In 1978 he was awarded the Neustadt International Prize for Literature, and in 1980 the Nobel Prize in Literature. In 1999 he was named a Puterbaugh Fellow.After the fall of the Iron Curtain, he divided his time between Berkeley, California, and Krakow, Poland. The prior owner of the book, Fred Kavli, was a Norwegian and naturalized American business leader, inventor, and philanthropist. He founded the Kavlico Corporation, located in Moorpark, California, which became one of the world's largest suppliers of sensors for aeronautic, automotive, and industrial applications supplying General Electric and the Ford Motor Company.
