Culture at Twilight: The National German-American Alliance, 1901-1918

Synopsis

"From its founding in 1901 to its demise in 1918, the National German-American Alliance sought to preserve and promote aspects of German culture in America. This study is the first to chronicle the seventeen-year history of the organization. It also examines how the Alliances's efforts serve as an example of the many problems faced by an ethnic organization seeking to preserve its cultural identity in the volatile environment that can be American democracy."
