520 8  One of the cherished narratives of American history is 
       that of the Statue of Liberty welcoming immigrants to its 
       shores. Accounts of the exclusion and exploitation of 
       Chinese immigrants in the late nineteenth century and 
       Japanese internment during World War II tell a darker 
       story of American immigration. Less well-known, however, 
       is the treatment of German-Americans and German nationals 
       in the United States during World War I. Initially 
       accepted and even welcomed into American society, at the 
       outbreak of war this group would face rampant intolerance 
       and anti-German hysteria. Melissa D. Burrage's book 
       illustrates this dramatic shift in attitude in her 
       engrossing narrative of Dr. Karl Muck, the celebrated 
       German conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, who was
       targeted and ultimately disgraced by a New York 
       Philharmonic board member and by capitalists from that 
       city who used his private sexual life as a basis for 
       having him arrested, interned, and deported from the 
       United States. While the campaign against Muck made 
       national headlines, and is the main focus of this book, 
       Burrage also illuminates broader national topics such as: 
       Total War; State power; vigilante justice; internment and 
       deportation; irresponsible journalism; sexual 
       surveillance; attitudes towards immigration; anti-
       Semitism; and the development of America's musical 
       institutions. The mistreatment of Karl Muck in the United 
       States provides a narrative thread that connects these 
       various wartime and postwar themes.
