essay raises. Setting the context A new era of international migration, and in particular the increasingly global search for asylum, has had profound impacts on the political landscape of the United Kingdom. Chakrabarti’s essay provides an eloquently powerful reminder that those disturbing features of this new landscape, the incarceration and arbitrary detention of asylum seekers, are not just the instruments of faraway, repressive governments: they are increasingly embedded in the fabric of a liberal democratic state like Britain. These instruments form the apex of a

The concerns of the Home Office, expressed in a Ministerial Statement to the House of Commons in May 2012, emphasised how ‘[M]uch of the UK’s TB burden is attributable to international migration. Around three quarters of TB cases in the UK occur in those born outside of the UK’.5 This has been echoed in most of the mainstream media where the ‘foreignness’ of the disease has been underscored in all the lamentations and calls to action. Once acknowledged as a persistent scourge, a regrettable resident within the British population, the disease was thought

brings into sharp focus wider developments that can be analysed within an individual city context, and the contents of this book exemplify that view. There is an understandable current political interest in immigration, which has spawned studies in historical migration experiences. The story of the Leeds Jewish community provides a micro case study of the wider patterns of international migration in recent European history. When geographers study migration, they seek to explain the relative importance of the ‘push’ factors which cause migrants to
