Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Indentured Labor, Caribbean Sugar Walton Look Lai offers the first comprehensive study of Asian immigration and the indenture system in the entire British West Indies — with particular emphasis on the experiences of indentured laborers in the major receiving colonies of British Guyana, Trinidad, and Jamaica. Exploring living and working conditions as well as the makeup of immigrant communities and their cultures, Look Lai offers a "dialectical pluralist" model of Caribbean acculturation that contrasts with the more familiar "melting pot" or "pure pluralist" model.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive study of Asian immigration and the indenture system in the entire British West Indies - with particular emphasis on the experiences of indentured labourers in the major receiving colonies of British Guyana, Trinidad and Jamaica.
