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. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Ren Schickele And Alsace

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."

Excerpt: The Imperial Territory of Alsace-Lorraine (German: , generally Elsass-Lothringen) was a territory created by the German Empire in 1871 after it annexed most of Alsace and the Moselle region of Lorraine following its victory in the Franco-Prussian War. The Alsatian part lay in the Rhine Valley on the west bank of the Rhine River and east of the Vosges Mountains. The Lorraine section was in the upper Moselle valley to the north of the Vosges Mountains. These territories had become part of Eastern Francia in 921 during the reign of King Henry I, and later were included in the Holy Roman Empire. Their population spoke Germanic and Romance dialects. Those in Alsace spoke mostly Germanic dialects, in particular Alsatian, an Alemannic German dialect similar to that spoken on the opposite bank of the Rhine, while those in Lorraine were divided roughly equally between those who spoke the Romance Lorrain dialect and those who spoke Franconian German dialects. The area had gradually become part of France between 1552, when Metz was ceded to the Kingdom of France, and 1798, when the Republic of Mulhouse joined the French Republic. After the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, the area was annexed by the newly-created German Empire in 1871 by the Treaty of Frankfurt and became a Reichsland. French troops entered Alsace-Lorraine in November 1918 at the end of the World War I; the territory reverted to France at the Tre...
