Top reviews from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However it is a well researched and completely factual book. The events described in Iraq, Turkey etc are shocking and terrifying, but possibly not surprising. The Asian section similarly - incredible description, but again possibly expected. However the Australian part of the book sheds incredible light on the way our politicians (both sides) treat our "democracy", and the effect they have on real, live people. Absolutely gob-smacking to a relatively conservative and democracy-believing person such as myself.
A word of warning: if you are Conservative without an ability to remain open minded, don't read this book - you'll hate it. For anyone else it is an incredible book for anyone of any political persuasion who remains open to learning.
And to my mind it should be compulsory reading for any politician or senior bureaucrat that has anything to do with political refugees.
It breaks my heart

I do not believe in people smuggling, however after reading the book I can understand why it takes place.
If all people smugglers were like Ali Al Jenabi then we would certainly reduce deaths at sea, due I believe mainly by smugglers being far too greedy, and thinking of the monitory side as opposed to the humane side.
This is a must read book
