About this Item

Publishers cloth. 8vo. XII, 217 pages. 24 cm. First edition. This volume assesses the composition and role of the German minorities throughout eastern central Europe before world war two; as the minorities, so called "Volksdeutschen" were used to legitimate nazi imperialist policy, the reception of these minorities to racist and imperialist aims is given critical, sociological, and scholarly treatment in the volume. One of the co-authors, Anthony Komjathy (1921-1998) "was a leader in the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and escaped Soviet forces, immigrating to the U. S. With his wife and daughter. He worked as a janitor in an apartment building while earning his master's and doctorate degrees at Loyola University of Chicago. He was born in Hungary and earned degrees at Ludovica Military Academy and the National War College of Hungary. Mr. Komjathy was decorated for his service in the Hungarian army during World War II.

S. , he began teaching in 1967 at Barat College in Lake Forest. He joined the Dominican University faculty in 1978.
