    Maybe this was really not what I expected. It was a factual survey on the treatment of refugees and asylum seekers of Afgahnistan to Australia 2001-2004 and the controversial goverment policies regarding this issue. It was well-reasearhed and gave an in-depth view into the socio-sultural background of the afghani people but I found many parts of it repetitive.
