Synopsis

Border Crimes Australia's War on Illicit Migrants by Michael Grewcock

Meticulously research and elegantly written, Border Crimes argues that Australia's treatment of asylum seekers as 'illegal immigrants' should itself be regarded as criminal - as state crime. Mike Grewcock marshals the evidence irrefutably; after reading his account, 'boat people' will never again appear as suspected illegal entrants. Professor Scott Poynting, Manchester Metropolitan University In this powerful and compelling book, Mike Grewcock eloquently exposes the organised criminal abuses and violence perpetrated by states against one of the world's most vulnerable populations. Through the lens of a state crime framework and with conceptual rigour he traces the political and historical antecedents of Australia's shameful asylum policy and practice. Refreshingly this book is not only about unconscionable crimes committed by states it also engages with resistance and locates the possibility of social justice firmly within the domain of civil society. Professor Penny Green, Kings College London
