Thomas Mann; the uses of tradition
Based, in part, on close reading of manuscripts and sources at the Zurich Thomas Mann Archive, Reed's study has long established itself as the standard work in English on Mann's fiction and thought. In this new edition, Reed adds a chapter on the new documentation that has appeared since thefirst edition. He details the main currents in Mann scholarship over the last two decades, suggesting how we should now see the writer, the man, and the political figure, and, above all, the complex relationship between the three.
