A new system of slavery : the export of Indian labour overseas, 1830-1920

Date

1974

Authors

Hugh Tinker

Abstract

The first comprehensive historical survey of a hitherto neglected and only partially known migration: the export of Indians to supply the labour needed in producing plantation crops in Mauritius, South and East Africa, Caribbean and other countries. This followed the legal ending of slavery and Professor Tinker shows the many features the two systems had in common.
