KIRKUS REVIEW

A statistically compiled survey of the refugee (particularly since Hitler entered the picture), prepared by the Committee for the Study of Recent Immigration from Europe. The report serves to dispel many of the preconceived, popular prejudices. The causes of flight; immigration-numbers and national and racial proportions; economic and occupational status; reactions to America; geographic distribution; problems of adjustment, economic, social; refugee service aids and agencies; problems of earning a living assimilation -- and the refugees as citizens; the children; business and industrial enterprises; careers in professions... A book which- if read- will refute most of the malicious misconceptions which have arisen. Of particular value in organizational fields.
