The Role of Indian Minorities in Burma and Malaya
One particular feature of British colonialism was to import low skilled, but hard working, subjects from one part of the British Empire to another. India was the principal source of such labour that was sent to other colonies in Africa, Asia and the Pacific. In this study the author analyses the histories of such exports to Burma and Malaya. She looks at questions such as how both the new arrivals and indigenous adapted to each other, how Indian cultural practices were affected and why the Indian population in Burma declined while it flourished in Malaya Very Good Hardback in a Good Dust jacket.
