The Hitler Emigres (466 crisp pp, 800g for post) investigates how Nazism changed Britain's social structure. Emigrés from Nazi Europe still inhabit London's Swiss Cottage; in this refugee heartland, they are known as the beret and borscht brigade. As well as an informative and painstaking history, The Hitler Emigrés shows British history is no longer an island saga of warring Saxon tribes and Romans. This modern nation was formed, in part, by a persecuted minority from abroad. The book features colourful portraits of some of Britain's most celebrated artists, architects, musicians, choreographers, film makers, historians, philosophers, scientists, writers, broadcasters and publishers - all skilfully woven into the wider context of British cultural history from the 1930s to the present.
