Exodus Within Borders
An Introduction to the Crisis of Internal DisplacementeBook - 1999
"Based on Roberta Cohen and Francis M. Deng's work, Masses in Flight: The Global Crisis of Internal Displacement (Brookings, 1998), this book offers, in summary and less technical form, the essential findings of that in-depth study: who and where the internally displaced are and what is being done for them, and how the international community can better organize itself to deal with not only a humanitarian challenge but also a threat to the security, stability, and economic well-being of nations on all continents. And Exodus within Borders offers one other important dimension. Through powerful photographs, it shows just what it can mean to be driven from one's home with no clothes, no food, and no sure place of refuge."--Jacket.
