Publisher's Summary

We are in the midst of a global refugee crisis. Sixty-five million people are fleeing for their lives. The choices are urgent, not just for them but for all of us. What can we possibly do to help?

With compassion and clarity, David Miliband shows why we should care and how we can make a difference. He takes us from war zones in the Middle East to peaceful suburbs in America to explain the crisis and show what can be done, not just by governments with the power to change policy but by citizens with the urge to change lives. His innovative and practical call to action shows that the crisis need not overwhelm us.

Miliband says this is a fight to uphold the best of human nature in the face of rhetoric and policy that humor the worst. He defends the international order built by Western leaders out of the ashes of World War II but says now is the time for reform. Describing his family story and drawing revealing lessons from his life in politics, David Miliband shows that if we fail refugees, then we betray our own history, values, and interests. The message is simple: Rescue refugees, and we rescue ourselves.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A critically important document

As a recently retired 79 year old Humanitarian Aid Engineer having worked for many years in many countries I would suggest that a copy of this document should be placed on the desk of every world leader, the CEO of every aid agency, schools, public libraries and more. What a revelatiion. Thank you David.

Concise and galvanising

Great book if you are looking for an overview of the current refugee ‘crisis’ combined with practical ideas about how you can help as an individual.
