Deutschsprachige Exilliteratur seit 1933 vermittelt ein genaues Bild der deutschsprachigen Exilliteratur in den Vereinigten Staaten. Schriftstellerinnen und Schriftsteller, die aus politischen oder ethnischen Gründen nach der Machtübernahme Hitlers ihre Heimat verlassen mussten, werden hier mit ihren im Exil verfassten Werken vorgestellt. Außer der Belletristik werden auch Film, Theater und literaturnahe Essayistik erschlossen. Mit Erscheinen von Teilband 3/5 ist das Werk jetzt abgeschlossen! Die beiden ersten Bände geben einen Überblick über die Schwerpunkte der Emigration: Band 1 - Kalifornien befasst sich z.B. mit Thomas Mann, Lion Feuchtwanger und Bertolt Brecht sowie mit Autoren, die für den Film in Hollywood arbeiteten, etwa Billy Wilder. In Band 2 - New York werden Emigranten vorgestellt, die nach New York gegangen sind, einem wichtigen Zentrum des Exils und der Auseinandersetzung mit dem Nationalsozialismus. Band 3, der in fünf Teilbänden erschienen ist, stellt mehr als 80 Persönlichkeiten in Einzelporträts vor. Die Teilbände 3/3 bis 3/5 enthalten außerdem thematische Aufsätze, die sich mit spezifischen Aspekten der Emigration beschäftigen und mit den Bedingungen, unter denen die Emigrierten leben mussten. Der aktuelle Teilband 3/5 bietet zudem eine gründlich überarbeitete und vervollständigte Tabelle "Exiljahre in den USA", die die genauen Daten des Exilaufenthalts aller in Band 5 enthaltenen deutschsprachigen Schriftsteller auflistet. Band 4 birgt in drei Teilbänden insgesamt 225 Personalbibliographien, davon sind 150 Erstbibliographien.
Between the two world wars, at a time when both sexual repression and sexual curiosity were commonplace, New York was the center of the erotic literature trade in America. The market was large and contested, encompassing not just what might today be considered pornographic material but also sexually explicit fiction of authors such as James Joyce, Theodore Dreiser, and D.H. Lawrence; mail-order manuals; pulp romances; and "little dirty comics." Bookleggers and Smuthounds vividly brings to life this significant chapter in American publishing history, revealing the subtle, symbiotic relationship between the publishers of erotica and the moralists who attached them—and how the existence of both groups depended on the enduring appeal of prurience. By keeping intact the association of sex with obscenity and shameful silence, distributors of erotica simultaneously provided the antivice crusaders with a public enemy. Jay Gertzman offers unforgettable portrayals of the "pariah capitalists" who shaped the industry, and of the individuals, organizations, and government agencies that sought to control them. Among the most compelling personalities we meet are the notorious publisher Samuel Roth, "the Prometheus of the Unprintable," and his nemesis, John Sumner, head of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, a man aggressive in his pursuit of pornographers and in his quest for a morally united—and ethnically homogeneous—America.
