The Internment of Aliens

Originally published in late 1940, this book exposed the scandal of the mass internment of German, Austrian, German speaking Czech and Italian exiles in the early part of the Second World War – a panic reaction to the fall of Norway and the Netherlands to Hitler’s armies.

The author (1913-2002) was Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at Birmingham University.


‘A very remarkable book… In its pages of close research, political analysis and agonized reporting lay a story which made the British wince with shame’
