    Overview

    Summary
    At a time of increasing international concern with immigration, this book is a timely reminder of the enormous contribution generations of academic refugees have made to learning the world over. The essays celebrate both the work of the Council for Assisting Refugee Academics and the achievements of the scholars themselves.
