Editorial Reviews


"... solidly researched book ..."
Michael Barnett, Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"Free World? is a fine contribution to the literature about the international response to refugees during the period from 1945 to 1963."
Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"Peter Gatrell has written a fine book which recounts and details a little remembered period of the history of humanitarian assistance to refugees some 50 years ago."
Journal of Refugee Studies

"Peter Gatrell's Free World? is an invaluable addition to the historiography of refugee affairs, and his engaging analysis raises new questions and modes of inquiry that other scholars will be well served to consider. Quite simply, Free World? is now the standard account of World Refugee Year."
Journal of World History"

"... impressive study ..."
International History Review

"This is a commendable book, rich with details showing Gatrell's fine research skills."
American Historical Review

Book Description

Free World? is a major contribution to the transnational history of humanitarianism in the postwar world. Peter Gatrell shows how and why the UN, NGOs, governments and individuals embarked on a unique campaign, World Refugee Year (1959-1960), in response to refugee crises in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East.
