Summary:
"Contests the notion that East Indians in 19th- and 20th-century Jamaica lacked 'cultural visibility' and were the most depressed of the East Indian communities in the Caribbean. Demonstrates that they maintained a distinct cultural identity despite the marginal position that they were alloted in society, especially in the political sphere. Useful work"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58. http://www.loc.gov/hlas
