The Enemy in Our Midst: Germans in Britain during the First World War

Acknowledgements

Many people have offered assistance with this work. I would first like to thank Michael Bentley who acted as one of my supervisors for the original Ph.D. thesis and helped me to improve my writing style and to think about the overall importance of my work. Others who deserve special mention include John Stevenson who read early drafts of chapters on anti-German riots; he also examined my Ph.D. thesis and has offered an enormous amount of help and encouragement in my first steps towards an academic career. Bill Williams kindly allowed me to use his notes on aliens in Manchester. Similarly, C. C. Aronsfeld invited me to his house and provided guidance in the early stages of the work. I also benefited from attending a conference entitled 'Traditions of Intolerance', organised by Tony Kushner and Kenneth Lunn. Both Tony and Kenny have helped me in other ways. The British Academy provided a postgraduate studentship which financed the research for this study and also made available additional funds for travel to many parts of Britain and to Germany. I am grateful for this support.

I would like to single out a series of people, to whom I would like to express my deepest gratitude. First, Roland Quinault who initially suggested the topic of Germans in Britain for an undergraduate dissertation. In addition he has offered help and encouragement in many other ways during and since my time at the Polytechnic of North London. Second, Luigi and Rosanne Esposito for their kind and generous friendship in the difficult period immediately after the completion of the original dissertation. Colin Holmes, meanwhile, accepted my topic for a Ph.D. thesis. He did all the normal things expected of a supervisor, such as providing references. In addition, he helped with the publications which grew out of this work. Furthermore, he has always answered the most obscure questions during numerous telephone conversations, without complaint. Above all, his constant encouragement instilled within me a faith in my own ability. Finally, and most importantly, I must attempt to express my gratitude to my parents. Like other Cypriot immigrant parents, they have sacrificed all for the welfare
