This new book (CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY STUDENT UNION INTERNATIONAL 2003-2004: INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS' STRUGGLE FOR REPRESENTATION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM) by Christian Kim is very interesting. The struggles of international students at Cambridge University and in the context of the United Kingdom come alive for the reader. There are many important documents and articles included in the book that makes this a historical document in its own right. Christian Kim's book points out the inadequacies of Cambridge University to deal with the influx of international students and their needs. Furthermore, this book exposes the underhanded policies of the British New Labour government. It would not be a surprise if this book becomes an important impetus for change in the United Kingdom. It seems that Christian Kim desires nothing more than positive change for the benefit of international students. This book is more than a recounting of the valiant struggles of international students, particularly in light of the onerous $500 Visa Renewal Fee that the British New Labour government struck on international students while they were away for the summer vacation. This book is a heart-warming account of the positivity of the human spirit to take on a big unfair power even when the odds are stacked against them. There are a lot of pictures in the book that make events come alive.
