xiv + 193 pages. Generally 84 percent of asylum seekers are found to be genuine refugees, yet thousands languish in Australia's illegal immigrant detention centres. This topical, not-for-profit publication provides a rare glimpse into the world of refugees who have fled war and persecution in their own countries, only to be detained in Australia's desert camps. Featuring an introduction by human rights activist and QC Julian Burnside; this moving anthology presents edited extracts from letters written by asylum seekers in response to a letter-writing campaign by Australian citizens opposing the Australian government's hard-line stance on asylum seekers. These letters give a human face and voice to one of the most controversial issues affecting the world today. All profits will be donated to asylum seeker organisations.
