Beschreibung

Contributors analyze how the pre-World War II German background and emigre experiences of Hannah Arendt and Leo Strauss influenced their perception of American democracywhich was later reflected in their American workand impacted the formation of the discipline of political science in postwar Germany. Arendt's and Strauss's experiences thus aptly illustrate the transfer and transformation of political ideas in the World War II era.
