The Marshall Plan - Since 1947
Guenter Bischof and Hans Petschar
On June 5, 1947, George C. Marshall delivered a speech in Harvard that was to change the world. With that speech, the U.S. Secretary of State and close confidant of President Truman ushered in the European Recovery Program (ERP), which soon burgeoned into the most successful political project in U.S. and European history.
Underwritten by the American taxpayer, an unbelievable $14 billion was made available between 1948 and 1952 for the Marshall Plan, money that continues to have multiple benefits for Austria’s state, economy and society.
Balancing the text and pictures to great effect, Günter Bischof and Hans Petschar tell the thrilling success story of the Marshall Plan and its undiminished vitality.
Quiet Invaders Revisited
Guenter Bischof (ed)
The essays in this book argue that the United States served as a great attraction for economic betterment to Austrian migrants before and during World War I; yet a third of these migrants actually remigrated. Remigration was less likely after World War I as the economic situa-tion deteriorated in Europe and the political situation landscape became desperate for Jews and the opponents of the Hitler regime.
