Passport, The: The History of Manís Most Traveled Document
Martin Lloyd (au)
The passport is a document used & recognized worldwide, & yet it has no basis in law: one country cannot oblige another to admit its subjects simply by issuing a document. But the state, by insisting on the requirement to hold a passport, provides for itself a neat, self-financing data collection & surveillance system. This well-illustrated book tells the story of the passport from its earliest origins to the latest high-tech developments. Handwritten documents adorned with wax seals, modern versions in plastic covers, diplomatic & royal passports & wartime safe conducts complement the exciting exploits of spies & criminals & the tragic real life experiences of refugees. ďAn informative & engrossing history book which is accessible to everyone.Ē Illustrations.
