This book was first compiled in 1967 for the 75th birthday of the author. Ernst Posner had written these 16 essays during the two decades between his emigration from Germany in 1939 and his retirement from American University in Washington, DC, in 1960.
This edition positions Posner's thinking in the context of his time and his experiences, especially those before he was forced to leave his post in the Prussian Privy State Archives in Berlin and his work for the famous Acta Borussica, a scientific edition of sources for Prussian history. This new perspective reveals Posner's role as a builder of bridges between the emerging archival profession in the United States and the European traditions.
