Summary:
"Excellent scholarly work, with many worthwhile pictures of East Indian migrants and their descendants, explores the roles and fortunes of this ethnic group. Of particular interest are the details about those who remained after expiration of their indentureship: occupations; savings; land acquisition; religious, social, economic, and political activities; and overall impact on Trinidadian society. Highly recommended"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58. http://www.loc.gov/hlas
