The dismissal of civil servants on racial or political grounds in April 1933 marked the beginning of a massive, forced exodus of mainly Jewish scholars and scientists from Nazi Germany - a phenomenon unprecedented in the modern history of academic life. Did the "exodus of reason" lead to significant scientific change, and if so, how should that change be characterized? The essays in this book present answers to these questions, and contribute to the comparative study of science in culture.
