This new edition of Retreat from Injustice has the strengths and style of its predecessor:

the account of human rights in Australia is firmly grounded in historical and international contexts; the availability and limitations of rights and freedoms are clearly detailed and illustrated with cases; and a particular spotlight is placed on key current human rights issues including terrorism, indigenous issues and asylum seekers.
