'A highly original take on the tortuous ways in which questions about race and Britishness have helped to shape what it means to be part of the nation and of British culture more broadly ... a really wonderful book.' Professor John Solomos, Centre for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, City University, London 'Kushner's painstaking scholarship, well presented by Ashgate - with footnotes where they belong - fills a hole in the history of ethnic relations in Britain. It will be indispensable to anyone working on Jewish or British social history, 'race' and immigration, anthropology and sociology.' Jewish Chronicle 'Kushner has produced an extremely important and readable analysis of everyday attitudes towards ethnic minorities in Britain during the 1930s and 1940s.' Times Higher Educational Supplement 'Kushner's book is intelligent, sophisticated, and humane...' The International History Review '... Kushner provides some really interesting excerpts from the project which highlight its potential as an anthropological resource... One of the great merits of the book is its honest assessment of the Mass Observation project.' Social Anthropology '... We Europeans? is an ambitious and important study that carefully illuminates popular racial attitudes and the sources of those attitudes in Britain in the 1930s and 1940s.' Journal of British Studies
