Das Nationalbolschewistische Manifest von Karl O. Paetel. Mit einem Nachwort von Prof. Franz-J. Wehage. Hanau: Haag + Herchen, 2012.

Geschäftsdeutsch. An Introduction to German Business Culture. Franz J. Wehage & Gudrun Clay. Focus Publishing, 2012.

Karl Otto Paetel. Ein deutsches Tagebuch. New York: Peter Lang, Oct. 1995.
    «Paetels Tagebücher dürften für Germanisten, Historiker und Soziologen gleichermaßen interessant sein. Der Herausgeber liefert einen wichtigen Beitrag zur deutschen Kulturszene vor und nach 1945, zur Exilproblematik, zur Inneren Emigration und zur Geschichte der Jugendbewegung.» (E.-Anette Koeppel, Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg)
    «Bei seiner Arbeit hatte Dr. Wehage Zugang zu bisher unbekannten Dokumenten. Er legt dieses Material mit sicherer Autorität aus. Ereignisse, die Historiker oft nur aus zweiter Hand deuten und kommentieren, hat Paetel am eigenen Leib erlebt und in seinem Tagebuch für unsere Zeiten skizziert und festgehalten. Die verschiedenen Aspekte der deutschen Jugendkultur fand ich besonders faszinierend.» (Thomas R. Nadar, Auburn University)

Karl Otto Paetel. Leben und Werk eines Literaturkritikers, mit einer umfassenden Bibliographie seiner Werke. Bern: Peter Lang, 1985.
    «...highly respectable work of scholarship about one of the most interesting of the anti-fascist exiles...Mr. Wehage's presentation and evaluation is based on a thorough knowledge of Paetel's voluminous literary estate.» (Professor Wolfgang D. Elfe, Columbia).
«It is characterized by sound scholarship, careful attention to detail....The author gives us the essence and spirit of central European intellectualism for the whole of Paetel's epoch.» (Professor Carl J. Odenkirchen, Albany)
