Excerpt

This study is the result of research begun in Germany in 1931 under a fellowship from Bryn Mawr College where it was accepted in 1937 as a doctoral thesis. The atmosphere of the Republic was stimulating and helpful to my work and I take this opportunity to thank the German professors, archivists, and citizens who encouraged me, both directly with materials and suggestions and indirectly by conversation. The newspaper and periodical files, chamber of commerce reports, and the handbooks of certain organizations, which form the bulk of the source materials for the study, were found in Germany. Other materials are largely available in this country. No use has been made of unpublished records, with the exception of a few references personally given me and acknowledged in the text. My original intention had been to make a similar study for anti-German opinion in England. It will be evident why I have confined myself to Germany. Moreover, I have wished primarily to try out a method of handling public opinion rather than to exhaust a problem of research.

My special gratitude is due the late Dr. Eckart Kehr, who in Germany and subsequently in this country gave me inestimable help in mapping out my work. I wish likewise to acknowledge with warmth the aid which I have received from the volumes of Dr. Alfred Vagts and from his criticism of the manuscript of my work.

In addition to my gratitude to Bryn Mawr College for its grant, I wish to express my sincere thanks to Professor Howard L. Gray, under whose direction the work was originally begun. He has shown unfailing interest in it and has carefully criticized the form and improved the style. My gratitude is also due to Professor Max Dietz, who has made many valuable corrections and suggestions in regard to translations from the German and style in general. Lastly, I wish to acknowledge the eneouragement and criticism given by my husband, Professor Eugene N. Anderson.
