"The exile is the most tragic by-product of history, yet paradoxically the contribution he makes to the culture in which he settles is enormous, both individually & collectively...The first part of this book investigates the way in which the word 'exile' is used & examines some of the legal definitions given to it. Dr Tabori then surveys briefly the numerous waves of exile throughout history; among them, the Greeks in the Roman Empire, the Jews in pre-Christian times, the great exiles of the French Revolution, Reformation & Counter-Reformation & the 1848 risings in Europe. Throughout this survey, emphasis is laid on individuals whose destinies were effected by these movements; beginning with the first recorded exile, Siuhe, in 2000 BC & including such great men as Ovid, Dante, Machiavelli, Erasmus, Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo & Karl Marx."
