Deportation Is Freedom! The Orwellian World of Immigration Controls

by Steve Cohen - £18.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843102946 | ISBN 10: 1843102943

A searing critique which exposes striking analogies between immigration systems and controls and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, the classic oppressive vision of totalitarianism, nationalism and terror.
Steve Cohen takes a fresh look at the ethical and political poblems surrounding immigration controls. He highlights the corruption of language for political purposes, revealing a culture immersed in 'Big Brother', 'newspeak','doublethink', 'memory holes, and 'thought police', and scrutinizes recent developments in UK and worldwide immigration policy. Cohen's penetrating analysis finds the system of immigration controls to be inherently racist, unjust and irrational: an intractable nightmare for immigrants, migrants and refugees.
A challenging and thought-provoking read for anyone who cares about the systems that shape our societies, including social workers, lawyers, policy makers and immigration campaigners.
