5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading for anyone studying modern issues of immigration, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Immigration Detention: Law, History, Politics (Hardcover)
I would echo the reviewer on Amazon.com in saying that this book is required reading for anyone who wishes to become further acquainted with modern immigration issues and wants a broad and unbiased view of this very controversial and much debated subject. Dr Wilsher covers a great deal of ground, starting from an analysis of historical immigration patterns and the use of detention to control illegal aliens. He then moves on to study the USA,UK and Australia with an analysis of how the case law has developed in regards to rights for immigrants over time before moving on to study international and human rights law concerning immigration detention.

The second part of the book deals with the political problems face for liberal democracies in particular when trying to balance their obligations under international human rights law whilst dealing with pressure at home for tougher immigration control measures which are nearly always politically popular. The whole book is written in a rigorous and yet engaging style that would be accessible to any interested layperson while at the same time proving an excellent work of reference for serious scholars. To that end I would congratulate Dr Wilsher on this fine work and thoroughly recommend it.
