about

The popular imagination of marriage migration has been influenced by stories of marriage of convenience, of forced marriage, trafficking and of so-called mail-order brides. This book presents a uniquely global view of an expanding field that challenges these and other stereotypes of cross-border marriage.
LUCY WILLIAMS is Lecturer in the School of Social Policy, Sociology, and Social Research, University of Kent, UK.
