A journalist for the UK’s 'The Guardian' newspaper writes about the players in the refugee crises that took center stage in 2015 when thousands of Syrians and others overwhelmed Greek islands seeking a path to the EU. He also follows one Syrian family man’s journey to Sweden, making the bigger story more intimate and personal.

These are amazing stories of determination and perseverance by people with, literally, nothing left to lose. Kingsley looks at all sides of the debates and while readers will know his opinion, is remarkably open to others. Highly recommended.
