Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Monumental research and knowledge about migration and what it entails in terms of suffering, exploitation, atrocities and death and the resources that human beings are capable of finding and generating not only to survive but also to create a life of quality; harrowing as well as profoundly moving and written in a clear, precise and succinct style. One of the most consciouness-enhancing books one could read in my opinion.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Lizzie on 3 Aug. 2009
Format: Paperback
I have recently started volunteering for a refugee charity and so wanted to learn more about the issues refugees face, and have found this book both touching and useful.

The book covers refugees experiences from a wide range of countries including palestine and Italy. I found the section on the UK paticularily interesting which contains some eye opening statistics concerning how refugees are portrayed by the media and how much money they actually contribute to the UK. The author has also covered how political institutions both national and international have responded differently to the influx of refugees as and when they have occured.

Historical accounts are also included in the book so the reader is able to learn more about why human rights abuses have taken place and there is even a section on the history of international refugee law, making this a useful book for students of human rights law and other similar subjects.
