Erich Auerbach was a Jewish refugee who in exile in Istanbul during WWII wrote one of the major works of 20th Century literary criticism. This book explores the major themes of his life's work, relates that work to his own life history, and explains his enduring relevance within the field of literary and cultural theory.

Jon Nixon is a Visiting Professor at Middlesex University, UK, and writes within the field of intellectual history and cultural and political theory. His recently authored books include Hannah Arendt: the Promise of Education; Rosa Luxemburg and the Struggle for Democratic Renewal; Gadamer: The Hermeneutical Imagination; and Hannah Arendt and the Politics of Friendship.
