Abstract:

This book is a pioneer study of the history of global refugee movements over the last century, ranging from east European Jews fleeing Tsarist oppression at the turn of the century to asylum seekers from the former Zaire and Yugoslavia as we approach the millennium. Recognising that the problem of refugees is a universal one for which we are all responsible, this book emphasises the human element which ultimately should be at the forefront of both the study of refugees and responses to them. The importance of the individual, argue Kushner and Knox, must be paramount.
