Threatened Peoples, Threatened Borders

1995. Michael S. Teitelbaum (ed.), Myron Weiner (ed.)

This 1995 book came in the wake of tragic developments in Bosnia, Haiti, and Rwanda, revealing just how urgent these issues are--as experts in the field show in these timely and thought-provoking essays.

The influx of refugees, asylum seekers, and other international migrants is increasingly regarded not only as a major humanitarian challenge but also as a political problem and a threat to national and international security.  This volume of essays gives a good background to current debates about the issue that, since the events of 9/11, have created strong partisan rancor in the U.S. government.
