Rezensionen
"The National German-American Alliance played a major role in public affairs until its demise during World War I. Its history, especially that of its leader, Dr. Charles J. Hexamer, is crucial to the understanding of the German-American experience. In a fascinating and superbly written analysis, Charles Thomas Johnson has traced the history of the Alliance from its earliest beginnings and has thereby provided a valuable contribution to the field of German-American Studies, and that is clearly required reading for all those interested in German-American history in the twentieth century." (Don Heinrich Tolzmann, University of Cincinnati)
"At last someone has written a book about the National German-American Alliance. Charles Johnson's fine study fills a gap in historiography and places this important, controversial, but too-little mentioned organization within the context of its time - not simply the era of the First World War, but the broader scope of ethnicity, social, and political history of the early part of the twentieth century." (Ross Gregory, Western Michigan University)
