Beschreibung

During the Second World War just under two thousand British citizens were detained without charge, trial, or term set, under Regulation 18B of the wartime Defence Regulations. Most of these detentions took place in the summer of 1940, soon after Winston Churchill became Prime Minister--when
belief in the existence of a dangerous Fifth Column was widespread. At first, Churchill was an enthusiast for vigorous use of the powers of executive detention. He later came to lament the use of a power which was, in his words, "in the highest degree odious." Although many detainees were soon
released, a considerable number remained in custody for prolonged periods--some for the duration of the war. This book provides the first comprehensive study of this Regulation and its history. Based on extensive use of primary sources, it describes the complex history of wartime executive
detention: the purposes which it served, the administrative procedures and safeguards employed, the conflicts which surrounded its use, and the effect of detention upon the lives of individuals concerned, few of whom constituted any threat to national security.

Pressestimmen

"An impressive work of scholarship. At once enlightening and disturbing, it is a highly original and very significant addition to the history of Great Britain during World War II."
--American Journal of Legal History
"This is a detailed and eloquent historical sketch that makes compelling reading."
--Public Law
"An admirable history of this instrument of constitutional dictatorship."
--American Historical Review
"Brian Simpson's book is a great achievement, a work of prodigious scholarship, [and] carries great authority because of the detail without which it would have had to rely on generalizations, inevitably open to critical scepticism. The value of his book lies in his analysis and in his insights."
---Journal of Law and Society
"Because of the importance of its subject and because Simpson has done so well in supporting his thesis of the untrustworthiness of both elected officials and civil servants, this book deserves a wide audience."
