This thoroughly-researched and well-documented book looks at several of the key aspects of the phenomenon of Indian indentured labour in the West Indies, from beginning to end - from the methods of recruitment in northern India, to the conditions of potential labourers in the Calcutta depots and aboard ships in transit; through conditions of the plantations in British Guiana (Guyana) and the protests and strikes against abuses; to the final abolition campaign in India and its success in 1918.

"Basdeo Mangru is a careful and thorough scholar who has studies the sources in great detail, including records which have scarcely been examined by earler writers in the Indian diaspora... A sound contribution to the West Indian and Imperial history." - Donald Wood, University of Sussex

"Erudite, lucid scholarship. Mangru's meticulous research produces long-awaited and convincing evidence of the struggles of the Indians for ther rightful place in the Caribbean." - Frank Birbalsigh, York University, Toronto

"... will make a lasting impact on Indo-Caribbean scholarship. He is meticulous, original, and above all commited to his subject." - David Dabydeen
