I have received the following email and I’m happy to bring it to the attention of readers:

I am writing to alert you the recent publication of Driven from Home: Protecting the Rights of Forced Migrants by David Hollenbach, SJ, a book that may be of interest to readers of the Free Movement blog.

Driven from Home is a balanced presentation of creative proposals on how to respond to the rights of the millions of people who have been driven from their homes by war, political oppression, extreme poverty, and natural disasters. Driven from Home advances the discussion on how best to protect and assist the growing number of persons who have been forced from their homes and proposes a human rights framework to guide political and policy responses to forced migration.

For more information about Driven from Home, please visit the Georgetown University Press‘s website.

I’ve no idea whether the chap is a raving ‘send em back’ loony (the quotes on the website from various luminaries strongly suggest otherwise) but if I get hold of a review copy I’ll let you know. Incidentally, check out the UKIP position on salt (the bit on public health). Tells you everything you need to know about them.
