BOOK REVIEWS 64 Ivor C. Jackson, The Refugee Concept in Group Situations , Kluwer Law International, The Hague, 1999. This book provides a detailed historical perspective on the evolution of the concept of group determination for refugee status from the period 1921 to 1985. The reasons for placing the study within these time frames is made clear, as 1985 marks the beginning of restrictive trends in the application of the refugee concept in group situations, from an earlier generous trend. It traces different refugee groups in Europe, Africa and Asia over this defined period illustrating how the refugee group concept was applied in all these situations. The content of this book shows meticulous detail in research and provides in-depth material for scholars, academics and historians for referral purposes. It also allows readers to gain insight into the applicability of the refugee group concept and how it fits into the 1951 United Nations Convention on the Status of Refugees. The book quotes directly from primary sources such as the official documents of the League of Nations and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) archive documents. Thus the authenticity of the information used in support of the book’s arguments
