This book seeks to demonstrate the transformations of Lewis Mumford's writings as they are effected by the conditions of being read in a different cultural context. The book accepts that meaning is culture-specific. Tschachler argues that the German "Mumford" is shaped both by attitudes toward the United States and toward American culture, and by the political culture and historical development in German-speaking countries. The first part examines the "Mumfords" that emerge when the man is understood from within German cultural texts. The second part records Mumford's books, articles, and other items as they have been translated into and published in German-speaking countries; it also records German-language criticism of Mumford in serial publications and books containing material on Mumford, and on works that treat Mumford in a wider perspective, respond to and apply his thought. Contents: Acknowledgements; Introduction; From Sticks and Stones to The Myth of the Machine: Readings and Misreadings; Three Framing Discourses for The Myth of the Machine; The Framing Discourses Reconsidered; Appendix: Lewis Mumford in German Translation and Criticism; Works Cited; Index.
