A New System of Slavery: The Export of Indian Labour Overseas 1830-1920

Front Cover
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.
