Transnational perspectives on Christian Democrats in exile

This book focuses on the political exile of Catholic Christian Democrats during the global twentieth century, from the end of the First World War to the end of the Cold War. Transcending the common national approach, the present volume puts transnational perspectives at center stage and in doing so aspires to be a genuinely global and longitudinal study. Political Exile in the Global Twentieth Century includes chapters on continental European exile in the United Kingdom and North America through 1945; on Spanish exile following the Civil War (1936–39), throughout the Franco dictatorship; on East-Central European exile from the defeat of Nazi Germany and the establishment of Communist rule (1944–48) through the end of the Cold War; and Latin American exile following the 1973 Chilean coup.

Encompassing Europe (both East and West), Latin America, and the United States, Political Exile in the Global Twentieth Century places the diasporas of twentieth-century Christian Democracy within broader, global debates on political exile and migration.

The fresh research that supports this book
not only contributes to our understanding of the phenomenon of
Christian Democrats in exile but also helps us grasp the diversity
and complexity of the Christian Democrat political identity and
the relevance of the transnational dimension, particularly when
it comes to the study of the diasporic experience of politicians,
intellectuals, and activists.

Kaiser’s and Kosicki’s Political Exile in the Global Twentieth Century: Catholic Christian Democrats in Europe and the Americas is an insightful, detailed examination of the challenges and conflicts encountered, and strategies employed by the expatriates as they sought to reintroduce democracy in their homelands. Of equal value, the historians provide an invaluable account of the involvement of the transnational CD party network, particularly the types and levels of assistance furnished to the exile communities. This narrative is an excellent addition to the literature on the Christian Democratic movement. - Vincent Stine, Journal of Religious History, 2023, https://doi.org/10.1111/1467-9809.13012
