Editors: Elli K. Heikkilä (Institute of Migration, Finland), Brenda S. A. Yeoh (National University of Singapore, Singapore)
Book Description:
This book focuses on the nexus between "marriage" and "migration" in the wake of the recent attention given to "foreign brides" and "mail-order brides". Also discussed herein are other aspects of love between couples and kith and kin, whether in inspiring mobility, or as affected by the crossing of borders. Where appropriate, arguments are contextualized within the broader political economy as well as demographic change. International marriages are an increasingly important phenomenon in many parts of the world and this book gives new knowledge about this wide topic from around the world.
