Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1st ed., 1979. 389 pp. D.j., 22 x 14cm. FINE. This book examines the policy of the British Government towards the Jewish problem during the Second World War. It is based on archival sources in Britain, Israel and the USA. Among the questions examined are the reasons for the near-total ban on Jewish refugee immigration to Britain during the war, the restrictive immigration policy in Palestine, the internment and deportation of aliens in Britain, the abortive Bermuda Conference on refugees of 1943, the failure to aid Jewish resistance in Europe, and the rejection of the scheme for the bombing by Allies of Auschwitz.
