Free-Market Socialists: European Émigrés Who Made Capitalist Culture in America, 1918–1968, Joseph Malherek. A narrative of immigration and adaptation, focusing on the lives of three remarkable European émigrés who fled the Nazis; interweaving their biographies with those of their wives, colleagues, and friends with whom they collaborated on projects that would shape the material environment and consumer culture of the United States.
The Historical Construction of National Consciousness, Selected Writings, Jenő Szűcs (author), Gábor Klaniczay, Balázs Trencsényi, Gábor Gyáni (eds.). English-language edition of a rich selection of the depth and breadth of the writings of Jenő Szűcs. With an introduction by the editors locating Szűcs in a transnational context, it offers a unique insight into the complex and sensitive debate on national identity in post-1945 East Central Europe.
Further details on the books will be announced on publication.
