Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the Contemporary World

The issue of asylum seekers and refugees is one of the most talked about subjects in contemporary politics, fueled by extensive coverage in the media. David J. 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."
Including a final statement on the British government's 2005 proposals for dealing with refugees, "Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the Contemporary World "is essential reading for all students of the history of the modern world and is ideal for newcomers to the subject.
