"It should be at the reach of any practitioner in asylum and human rights. It ought also to inform decisions by the Home Office on initial asylum claims. It is also essential for the specialised immigration and asylum judiciary and for those assembling an appellate case in the Court of Appeal or the House of Lords. Human rights law is an increasing component of law degree courses in the United Kingdom. Academic lawyers will find the book invaluable." - Law Quarterly Review, 124(Jan 2008), 163-166 "This is the third edition of what is now one of refugee law's classic texts. The authors sew together a wealth of knowledge and learning and an extraordinary quantity of information including history, international, regional and domestic law as well as discussion of state practice. The result is a work which is clear, practical, easy to use and convincing." - Journal of Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Law, 2007, 21(4), 351-353 Review(s) from previous edition"'a thoughtful and learning comprehensive treatise [that] illustrates profound and careful scholarship.' - Immigration & Nationality Law & Practice "'the most authoritative text available on international refugee law.'" - Refugee Reports
