Most of the thirty-nine essays in this useful anthology were originally presented as papers at a two-day Salzburg symposium held in May 1987 at the height of the Waldheim affair and on the eve of the fiftieth anniversary of the Anschluss. By this time Salzburg-behind the leadership of Botz, Ernst Hanisch, and others-had become the major academic center for sane engagement with the painful issues surrounding Austria's history as part of the Third Reich between 1938 and 1945.
