""Certain to become a most needed reference work in connection with Austrian exile studies...one special feature of this volume is the sheer quality and amount of hitherto unpublished primary material and the contextualizing evaluation of it by expert scholars in the field... 'Out of Austria' will provide genuinely new insights into the exile situation in political, social and cultural terms; it will also illustrate the relations between Austrian refugees and their hosts in wartime Britain."" -- Professor R.

""This is a fascinating and well-researched book which will attract a wide readership, covering as it does so many areas of social, political, cultural and general interest."" -- Professor J.M. Ritchie
