As the Zuckers relate, the United Nations defines a refugee as anyone who has a well-founded fear of persecution because of race, religion, nationality, or politics, and who wants to enter another country. The Refugee Act of 1980 closely mirrors the U.N. definition, except that refugees judged to be simply "in distress" are not allowed to emigrate. The Zuckers describe who gets into this country, why, and how they are resettled. They make policy recommendations to change the present unfair system, which, they believe, does not live up to the spirit of the Refugee Act. Comprehensive, well written, and highly recommended.
