A well-known American social scientist, born and educated in pre-Hitler Germany, publishes his memorabilia from the first decade after Germany's defeat. The records of his impressions and conversations attest to a sensitive observer, amazed at the sheer resiliency of people, at life asserting itself amid ruins. There is significant commentary on the style of the American presence as well.
