Indian Indenture in British Malaysia:

The Politics of Policy and Practice in the Straits Settlements

-

David Chanderbali

New. Chanderbali, a Guyanan historian, came to write this study after noting the similarities between the indenture system practiced by British planters in the West Indies and the system practiced in the early days of the British presence in Malaya. That was hardly surprising since some of the earlier planters in Province Wellesley, a piece of land acquired by the British in 1800 from the Sultan of Kedah to produce food for neighbouring Penang, were from the West Indies and Mauritius. This work fills a gap in migrant history scholarship since previous works on Indian migrant labour in Malay a have usually mentioned the indenture system and how it worked in passing. 232 pages. The contents include the following chapters

  • I - Indian Indenture System Evolution and Structure,
  • II - Conflicting Interpretations of Indian Indenture,
  • III - The Straits Demand for Indian Indentured Labour,
  • IV - The Transition to Regulated Indenture,
  • V - Recruitment,
  • VI - The Emigration Process,
  • VII - The Conditions of Labour,
  • VIII - Wages,
  • IX - Housing and Health.
  • There are also tables, maps, a glossary, appendices, a bibliography and an index.
