Summary
"Hoping for a quiet public-service job, Mitchell walked into the Department of Immigration in 1990 and quickly found himself on the frontline of one the nation's most devisive issues. ... For the first time, Compassionate bastard takes us behind the razor wire to reveal the sometimes difficult, sometime farcical processes our public servants are duty-bound to implement while dealing with people in traumatic circumstances."--Back cover
