Linda Rabben author of Give Refuge to the Stranger: The Past, Present, and Future of Sanctuary
Linda Rabben author of Give Refuge to the Stranger: The Past, Present, and Future of Sanctuary ($26.95) The concept of sanctuary-giving refuge to the threatened, vulnerable stranger-is universal and older than human society. From its origins in primate populations, to its elaboration in ancient religious traditions, to the modern legal institution of asylum, Linda Rabben tells the story of sanctuary as it evolved over thousands of years. She then examines asylum today, analyzing policy in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia and linking them to the experiences of courageous individuals to show how immigration and asylum are under attack in around the world. Her expert account offers critical context for understanding current political debates and is a stimulating, literate text accessible to undergraduates as well as the general public. Linda Rabben, PhD, is a leading writer, researcher, and advocate for human rights. She has worked for organizations such as Amnesty International, the Rainforest Foundation and the U.S. Institute of Peace and currently coordinates the Refugee Professional Recertification Project of RefugeeWorks. She has written or edited five books, including Walking the Forest with Chico Mendes, Unnatural Selection, and Fierce Legion of Friends. Her articles on human rights have appeared in periodicals including The Nation, Cultural Survival Quarterly, and Discovery Channel Magazine, and she won the Spann Memorial Essay Prize of the Debs Foundation and a Catholic Press Association award for her writing on Brazil. Rabben has served on the American Anthropological Association's Committee for Human Rights, the Brazilian Studies Association's executive committee and its human rights task force, and the Academic Freedom and Human Rights Committee of the Latin American Studies Association. "Linda Rabben has written a profoundly human and inspiring work that explores in personal, historical, and anthropological terms the motivations that lead ordinary people to provide sanctuary to people fleeing violence, upheaval, and persecution. Rabben looks beyond law and politics to find the human connections that inspire people to open their doors and their arms to welcome and embrace the homeless wanderer. In the face of rising xenophobia, eroding asylum space, and closing doors to asylum seekers, Rabben reminds us that the spontaneous and unregulated urge to provide sanctuary for refugees is part of our DNA, and will survive as long as we do. Linda Rabben confronts us with the shameful evidence of the way the public policy of the US, the UK and other developed nations has legitimated the mistreatment of asylum seekers and undocumented migrants. Linda Rabben employs passion and detailed research to explain how we are uniquely equipped for border-crossing empathy. Frans de Waal, author of The Age of Empathy "In Give Refuge to the Stranger, Linda Rabben places asylum in its proper social, economic and historical context. By doing so, she allows us to understand the ongoing importance of sanctuary-an ancient and noble institution that remains a crucial dimension of our human heritage. Michael Welch, author, Detained: Immigration Laws and the Expanding I.N.S. Jail Complex "Rabben writes with the engagement of an investigative journalist, the detail of a historian, and the passion of an advocate - her work documents the continuing and compelling power of the concept of sanctuary in our times.
