"This excellent volume illuminates the enormous breadth of the contributions made to American and British life by refugee intellectuals escaping from Nazism. In the social sciences, philosophy, legal thought, the natural sciences, music, theater, and many other fields of endeavor, the refugees made a deep and lasting impression on the cultural and intellectual life of the West. This collection of elegantly written essays documents the profound impact of these individuals and underscores the fact that their acceptance was often preceded by years of rejection and struggle. A compelling volume."—Alan E. Steinweis, professor of history and director of the Center for Holocaust Studies, University of Vermont
