In August 2001 a Norwegian vessel, the MV Tampa, picked up 433 asylum seekers from a boat sinking in international waters between Australia and Indonesia. What the Howard government did in response created waves internationally. This revised edition includes an epilogue bringing the book up to date with the latest developments. The epilogue covers the Cornelia Rau and Vivian Alvarez Solon cases, Liberal backbencher Petro Georgiou's successful campaign to get children out of detention centres, and much more.
