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.
