Der Band bietet die meisten der noch existierenden, bisher unveroeffentlichten Chansons des Wiener Komponisten und Textdichters Jimmy Berg (1909-1988), in denen politische Satire und humorvolle, leicht ironische Unterhaltung abwechseln. Seine in Wien vor 1938 geschriebenen Verse sind Beispiele der antifaschistischen, pazifistischen Lyrik jener Jahre, seine in New York entstandenen Chansons einzigartige Dokumente des New Yorker Exil-Kabaretts. Neben einer biographischen Einleitung enthaelt das Buch Illustrationen, Noten zu einigen Chansons und Anmerkungen, die Personen identifizieren und politische und andere Anspielungen erklaeren.
