This fascinating book, originally published in 1919 as the First World War drew to a close tackles the question of Alsace-Lorraine, one of the chief causes of the war and the most important obstacles to peace. Cerf addressed the book to Americans in order to present facts which would “confirm the belief that peace can be restored to Europe and the world only after the return of the lost provinces to France”. A compelling read that is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of the amateur and professional historian alike. Contents: Germany’s Claims to Alsace-Lorraine; The Consent of the Governed; Persecution: 1871-1914; The Question of Autonomy; The Failure of Germanization; During the War; The Economic Question; The Question of a Plebiscite; Conclusion; Bibliography. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

Born into a German-French bilingual environment, the once renowned German-language author Rene Schickele (1883-1940) grew up in the Alsace region - today located in eastern France - during its annexation to the German Empire when links to French culture were frowned upon. In the aftermath of the First World War the situation was reversed when Alsace was reclaimed by the French Republic. In both these phases of its troubled history, Schickele insisted on the importance of Alsace's right to retain its double cultural heritage between the borders of its powerful rival neighbours and on its potential, as mediator between France and Germany, to promote peace in Europe. These issues are addressed in a critical discussion of a range of Schickele's works. His controversial wartime drama "Hans im Schnakenloch" affords a wry but penetrating insight into issues of identity in Alsace under German rule up to the war, while his socio-political essays and a novel trilogy, "Das Erbe am Rhein," were written against the backdrop of the "malaise alsacien" and life under French rule. The historical background to the work is examined in detail as it is intimately bound up with the issues of cultural identity that Schickele explores in his writings."
