"Given the wealth of literature that has appeared in recent decades on the victims of Nazism, it is now rare indeed for a book on the refugees from Hitler in Britain to open up to its readers an almost completely unexplored area of that history. Yet this is the case with Charmian Brinson and Richard Dove's study, A Matter of Intelligence: MI5 and the Surveillance of Anti-Nazi Refugees, 1933-1950" (Anthony Grenville, Association of Jewish Refugees Journal, July 2014) "An immaculately researched study" (Nicholas Jacobs, Camden New Journal, 10/07/2014) -- .
