Abstract

This book explores the French emigration to the US during the Second World War, which involved many of pre-war France's most influential and creative people in all fields from music, painting, writing and philosophy to politics, atomic physics and mathematics. It charts their contribution to the rise of New York as cultural capital of the West and their influence in maintaining an image of an independent and democratic France as an indispensible partner in the post-war reconstruction of Europe.
