This is the first ever detailed study of a central plank in current British immigration law designed specifically to keep out as many young people from the Indian subcontinent as possible by making their entry as spouses subject to official discretion and to requirements that are in many cases impossible to fulfil.;The author has put together material from widely dispersed sources to produce a detailed account of how this cruel rule has been developed and fine-tuned over the past two decades. The effects of this rule are felt in virtually all Asian families in Britain today and have implications for the lives of young Asians growing up in Britain, especially for women who may be expected to join a husband in the subcontinent rather than calling him to Britain. The book will interest all people concerned about immigration policies and is a valuable resource for social workers, educationalists, immigration advisers and lawyers.
