"By the mid-1930s, as anti-Semitism crested and Roth fled Germany for what he thought were safer climes in Paris, he became increasingly desperate and hobbled by alcoholism. He had tremendous difficulties securing a German publisher, and his powerful 1937 preface, written for what he hoped would be the second edition of The Wandering Jews and included here, was never published in his lifetime."--BOOK JACKET.
