A rather pedestrian account of the work of the Emergency Committee in Aid of Foreign Scholars, which accomplished so much in snatching some of the finest minds of Europe from the jaws of the Hitler regime, and providing them with homes and congenial work in this country. With a little more imagination and gift in writing, this might have been a thrilling story. As it is, it provides a clear statement of what the Committee did during fifteen years of its existence. It makes unnecessarily dull reading, even for those concerned in the subject, but is a valuable record for future historians, and for those interested in our social techniques. A rescue work so well done might have commanded better presentation. And the title, alone, will kill it for popular appeal.
