520 |a "This thesis compares and contrasts key elements of the German and American nudist movements from 1918 to 1933. The subject matter of this thesis has three dimensions, the first two of which lay the groundwork for what the core of the thesis examines. The first dimension analyzes the history and origin of the nudist movement in Germany. The second examines the foundations of the nudist movement within the United States. The third, and the heart of the thesis, is the comparison of how the movement developed with Germany to that of the United States. This comparison includes evaluating their similarities and differences and examining why a nudist movement emerged in two different location of the world." -- Introduction.
