" - addresses one of the historically most neglected topics in exile studies - [The] chapters - are of a very high quality, written in an accessible and engaging style - Hopefully, Destination London will inspire more examinations of German speaking emigre film makers in Britain." * Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television " - the volume not only makes a significant contribution to film history, it also further intervenes in broader contemporary debates on transnationalism in and beyond Germany. The scope of this intervention is drawn out admirably in Bergfelder's introduction." * Monatshefte "This anthology addresses a subject which has long needed careful documentation and is one which Bergfelder and Cargnelli - are probably uniquely equipped to deal with. This is a book which genuinely fills a gap (is there any other legitimate reason for a book's existence?) and in doing so is eminently readable as well as scholarly - there is more work to be done in this field of enquiry but this anthology ensures that the project is well under way." * Journal of British Cinema and Television "Rarely have essays in a collection been written so fluently and interesting as is the case here; successful translations from the German add to the overall positive impression. Bergfelder and Cargnelli succeeded in producing a most attractive volume." * rezens.tfm
