9780415360906: Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the Contemporary World (The Making of the Contemporary World)

Examining a number of case studies, including Palestinian, Afghan and Iraqi refugees, David J. Whittaker’s book provides a balanced introduction to this very controversial subject.

Fuelled by extensive coverage in the media, the issue of asylum seekers and refugees is one of the most talked about subjects in contemporary politics. Whittaker cuts through the emotive language to give an objective introduction to the subject. 

Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the Contemporary World discusses the international as well as national implications of the issue, and 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, this volume is essential reading for all students of the history of the modern world and is ideal for newcomers to the subject.
