'This powerful study looks behind the statistics and political slogans to reveal the human face of the refugee crisis.' Guardian

Acclaimed journalist Daniel Trilling presents a powerful and illuminating portrait of the refugee crisis, seen through the eyes of the people who experienced it first-hand. Visiting camps, hostels, and detention centres, and delving into his own family's history of displacement, Trilling weaves together the stories of people he met showing that the terms commonly used to define them - refugee or economic migrant, legal or illegal, deserving or undeserving - fall woefully short of capturing the complex realities.
