Stalin's American Spy tells the remarkable story of Noel Field, a Soviet agent in the US State Department in the mid-1930s. Lured to Prague in May 1949, he was kidnapped and handed over to the Hungarian secret police. Tortured by them and interrogated too by their Soviet superiors, Field's forced 'confessions' were manipulated by Stalin and his East European satraps to launch a devastating series of show-trials that led to the imprisonment and judicial murder of numerous Czechoslovak, German, Polish and Hungarian party members. Yet there were other events in his very strange career that could give rise to the suspicion that Field was an American spy who had infiltrated the Communist movement at the behest of Allen Dulles, the wartime OSS chief in Switzerland who later headed the CIA. Never tried, Field and his wife were imprisoned in Budapest until 1954, then granted political asylum in Hungary, where they lived out their sterile last years. This new biography takes a fresh look at Field's relationship with Dulles, and his role in the Alger Hiss affair. It sheds fresh light upon Soviet espionage in the United States and Field's relationship with Hede Massing, Ignace Reiss and Walter Krivitsky. It also reassesses how the increasingly anti-Semitic East European show-trials were staged and dissects the 'lessons" which Stalin sought to convey through them.

Am Beispiel Leipzigs, der zweitgrößten Stadt in der DDR, zeichnet die Studie die politische Erfahrungsgeschichte von Juden unter den Bedingungen von Sozialismus und Kaltem Krieg nach. Dabei wird deutlich, das sich jüdisches Leben dort nicht allein über die Gemeindeorganisation bestimmte, sondern auch über die Zugehörigkeit zu religiösen und politischen Strömungen wie der Reform, der Orthodoxie, Zionismus, Sozialismus und Kommunismus. Das Verhältnis der SED zu den jüdischen Bürgern war nicht festgefügt, vielmehr war es Ausdruck eines wechselseitigen Aushandlungsprozesses. Hendrik Niether zeigt auf, dass ungeachtet aller Widrigkeiten des Kalten Kriegs und staatlicher Repression eine ständige Kommunikation zwischen Leipziger Juden, emigrierten Leipzigern und jüdischen Organisationen in Westeuropa, Israel und den Vereinigten Staaten bestand. Dabei bildete die Erfahrung des Holocaust ein verbindendes Element der Verständigung. In der ostdeutschen Gesellschaft indes trat das Interesse an jüdischer Geschichte und Kultur umso stärker in den Vordergrund, je mehr der Antifaschismus seit den Siebzigerjahren an Bindekraft verlor. Dies galt sowohl für kirchliche und oppositionelle Kreise als auch für die geschichts- und kulturpolitischen Akteure der SED.

On the battlefields of world history, music has had many functions. It is exploited by propaganda to hound the enemy, and battle songs are used to drive out fear and vilify the enemy. Soldiers sing and play music to find solace in the madness of war and to remain human. The First World War - the first modern war - led the way in the functionalisation of music. While old traditions such as the soldier song still had their importance, new media such as the gramaphone record were tested for propagandistic ends. Popular songs from operettas and chorus songs began to take over the function that folk songs previously had. The diverse roles of music in the first World War are examined in the contributions to this volume. The authors shed light on the theme from different perspectives. How was music used in propaganda to fight the enemy? How did soldiers in the trenches use music to survive? And, finally, how was the theme of war dealt with in music?
