Sojourners To Citizens: Sri Lankan Tamils in Malaysia, 1885-1965
The decision of the British census authorities to treat Ceylonese Tamils as generally part of the Indian community has served to enable those outside the community to overlook their distinct history in the country. Before the publication of this book virtually nothing in English had been written about the Tamils brought from Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, to bolster the British presence in Malaya. As the author demonstrates, the Ceylonese Tamils generally found their way into the civil service and education services, compared with their Indian Tamil cousins who tended to work the plantations.
