They were opened to research in the spring of 1953, as the result of a U. S.--British agreement.The chief credit for effecting the release of these papers from the German Foreign Ministry Documents Project (sponsored by the U. S., British, and French governments) belongs to the German Documents Branch of the U. S. Department of State. Its members, being scholars themselves, have shown real understanding for the needs of scholarship and have tried to make available for research as many of the captured German materials as possible. Without their efforts, this book could not have been written. The author is indebted, furthermore, to his colleagues of the Johns Hopkins history department for sharing some of his teaching duties, so he could devote his time to research and writing. In addition, Professors Sidney Painter and David Spring gave invaluable advice, especially on matters of style and organization. Dr. Fritz Epstein of the Library of Congress, Professor Edward Fox of Cornell University, Professor Raymond Sontag of the University of California at Berkeley, and Dr. Annelise Thimme each read and criticized the manuscript, making many pertinent observations and useful suggestions. In addition, Miss Thimme kindly permitted the author to read the manuscript of her forthcoming biography of Stresemann. The careful scrutiny of the manuscript by Miss Lilly Lavarello . . .
