This title was first published in 2001. This thought-provoking book examines the repercussions of British immigration policy under the Conservative government for individuals from the developing countries using primary empirical data. It is a well-informed, balanced and empirically sophisticated study, which is suitable for courses on politics, ethnic studies and law.


’…an important and original contribution…The authenticity of Dr Hussain’s account is significantly enhanced by the fact that all the interviews were conducted in the language of the respondent’s choice.’ Professor William L. Miller, University of Glasgow, UK
