We Are not Refugees by Agus Morales


This book gives the stories of refugees. It explores; the trends that lead the refugees to leave their homes, their journeys to ‘safety,’ and the welcome which they receive from their new country.

This book gives the stories of refugees. It explores; the trends that lead the refugees to leave their homes, their journeys to ‘safety,’ and the welcome which they receive from their new country.

We are Not Refugees explores the language that these individuals use, to tell their tale, recounting the stories of individual refugees. Agus Morales places these tales within a wider immigrant narrative, outlining the histories of many of the world’s trouble spots.

This book manages to be, at the same time; both, incredibly compelling and informative. I highly recommend this work.
