Whittaker's book provides a balanced introduction to this very controversial subject." "Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the Contemporary World discusses the international as well as national implications of the issue, looking at the way different governments have dealt with it. Taking a number of case studies, for example Palestinian, Afghan and Iraqi refugees, Whittaker cuts through the emotive language to give an objective introduction to the subject. The book looks in detail at the issue as it has affected Britain and Europe in particular, as well as including material on the UN and its response to the refugee 'problem'."--BOOK JACKET." ;
