Review of 'Human Cargo', Caroline Moorehead, Chatto & Windus £12.99
This remarkable book began on a February afternoon in Cairo. The author and journalist, Caroline Moorehead, came across a group of Liberian refugees at a human rights meeting. They told her about their lives: where they came from and where they wanted to be. As the light faded she decided to tell their stories and the stories of other displaced people ignored and vilified by self-serving politicians in the west.
