This volume commemorates life and oeuvre of Willi Paul Adams. He belonged
to a generation of German historians of the United States who shaped the
profession in multifaceted ways. Kathleen Conzen, University of Chicago,
writes in her commemorative essay: „Willi Paul Adams produced an
impressive and varied body of scholarship in his chosen field of American
history. He made a lasting contribution to our understanding of the basic
principles and processes under which Americans established their first
democratic constitutions, stimulated significant inquiry into the
political consequences of immigration for the United States, produced
three major interpretive surveys of American history for non-American
audiences, and gave German readers access through scholarly translations
to major documents in the American political tradition.“
