About the Authors
  • This collection provides the most comprehensive English-language survey of the conduct of neutral and non-belligerent states during the war for fifty years. The essays focus on how individual neutral governments perceived international developments and reveal the domestic political circumstances that critically affected their response to the course of the war. They therefore provide the political context that has been overlooked in recent controversies surrounding their humanitarian and financial activities, and offer analytical introductions to the large amount of historical writing unavailable in English.

    • A comprehensive treatment of Europe's neutrals and non-belligerents
    • Contributions drawn from scholars who are not only experts in their fields, but who come from the countries they write about - which enhances the book's unique perspective
    • Presents for an English-language audience the results of research carried out in foreign countries

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...likely to become an essential volume on the subject for some time. Ultimately, the book is completely successful in persuading readers that there is more to neutrality than the ostrich head-in-the-sand stereotype and that neutrality has deep historical roots worthy of serious study. The timing of Wylie's collection, from a Canadian perspective, is perfect." Paul W. Doerr, Acadia University, Canadian Journal of History

    "This is an important and well-prepared volume on a topic of great historical and contemporary relevance." The Journal of Military History

    "A useful read..." NYMAS Newsletter

    "This collection of short studies of European neutral and nonbelligerent nations during WWII is a useful supplement to general histories of the war that generally give scant coverage to the often-significant role played by these countries.... [A]ll but the smallest collections should give serious consideration to acquiring this book." Choice

    "A well-organized and interesting series of articles." H-DIPLO
