Assignment to Austerity: an American Family in Britain

By Herbert and Nancie Matthews
Bobbs-Merrill, 1950
338 pp. $3.00
Purchase

The former New York Times London correspondent and his wife collaborate on a sketch of life in postwar Britain, the former wrestling with politics and economics, the latter shuddering slightly over queues and gray austerity. The general effect is one of fair-minded sympathy mingled with apprehension for the future and some nostalgia for the past.
