In a virtuoso study of three widely different yet compellingly similar human stories that begin in the late nineteenth century and end in the mid-twentieth, Leo Spitzer considers what he calls the predicament of marginality at a time when mainstream bourgeois culture proclaimed the virtue of assimilation- and he boldly addresses the social and moral anguish faced by subordinate peoples trying to adjust to dominant societies.

Each of the three families spawned prominent figures: the best-selling author Stefan Zweig, the engineer and abolitionist Andre Reboucas, and the mayor of Freetown, Cornelius May. Yet each suffered terribly, and Spitzer offers a brilliant analysis of the historical, sociological, and psychological bases of their experiences.
