## Mathematicians Fleeing from Nazi Germany: |

The emigration of mathematicians from Europe during the Nazi era signaled an irrevocable and important historical shift for the international mathematics world. Based on archival sources that have never been examined before, the book discusses the preeminent emigrant mathematicians of the period, including Emmy Noether, John von Neumann, Hermann Weyl, and many others. The author explores the mechanisms of the expulsion of mathematicians from Germany, the emigrants' acculturation to their new host countries, and the fates of those mathematicians forced to stay behind. The book reveals the alienation and solidarity of the emigrants, and investigates the global development of mathematics as a consequence of their radical migration. An in-depth yet accessible look at mathematics both as a scientific enterprise and human endeavor, "An in-depth yet accessible look at mathematics both as a scientific enterprise and human endeavour, "Siegmund-Schultze has a profound and deep understanding of the culture of mathematics and mathematicians. His book conveys very well how complicated and subtle the process of emigration was . . . and how much the émigré's themselves had to overcome."
"The book is heavily based on primary archival sources that have not been analyzed before. Many people will profit from its illuminating discussions of the material." "This is an excellent book."
