The works of English essayist, novelist and short story writer, E.M. Forster, rank in the sphere of such influential writers as James Joyce, William Faulkner and Virginia Woolf for their remarkable humanist views and emphasis on the conflicts of English social classes. Forster's own favorite of his works, "The Longest Journey" touches on themes of family, sexuality, preoccupation with material society, and the necessity of passion in life. This novel is considered to be the most autobiographical of Forster's works, and explores his most humanistic views through the life of Rickie Elliot, a young man whose upbringing and education reflects the author's own experiences. Rickie's journey from childhood, through school, the discovery of an unknown brother, and later marriage serves as an example to readers of all generations of the necessity for personal connections, and more importantly passion, in every person's life.

Australia is one of only ten western countries which resettles refugees recommended by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The federal government has justifiably defended this long-term contribution to assisting the world’s refugees. But how fair is the resettlement process? Does it always--as Amanda Vanstone and her predecessor, Philip Ruddock, insist--help the neediest of all refugees? Drawing on interviews with refugees, policymakers, officials and aid workers in Nairobi, Kakuma, Geneva, Canberra and Melbourne, this book looks at the opportunities and obstacles that face refugees whose homelands are in turmoil.

The Longest Journey is a bildungsroman by E. M. Forster, first published in 1907. It is the second of Forster's six published novels, following Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905) and preceding A Room With A View (1908) and Howards End (1910). It has a reputation for being the least known of Forster's novels[1], but was also the author's personal favourite and one of his most autobiographical.[2] It is the only one of Forster's novels not to have received a film or television adaptation

Like all of E. M. Forster's novels, the plot of "The Longest Journey" is secondary to the underlying themes - the new 'mechanical' society that Forster hated, being true to oneself and class structure. In "The Longest Journey," E. M. Forster follows the character of Rickie Elliot from his Cambridge days through various attempts to find happiness and fulfillment in life. The fascinating thing about the novel is that there isn't a single character that you can pinpoint as good or bad -- like real people, the characters lie and put on false fronts. Characters like Agnes, who Rickie loves, and Mrs. Failing, his relative, make some great points about women in society. Though "The Longest Journey" is primarily a "novel of manners" like Jane Austen would write, there are several exciting plot twists, including a surprise ending. If you enjoy books by authors like Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy, try E. M. Forster's "The Longest Journey."
