During the more than 90 years of the Pulitzer Prizes, quite a number of awards went to articles, cartoons and books dealing with Germany. For the first time, this volume not only presents prize-winning material of that kind but also mentions the circumstances of the various prize-givings and adds details about the winners. The confidential jury reports give some background information about the decision-making processes. All sources come exclusively from the Pulitzer Prize Collection at Columbia University, New York.
Heinz-Dietrich Fischer, Ed.D., Ph.D., is professor emeritus at the Ruhr University of Bochum, Germany.
