Beschreibung:

This book provides an illuminating and detailed account of the cultural, social and political experience of Indians in Grenada. It offers a clear discussion on the system of indenture, plantation life and the Indians contribution to Grenada s economy as well as the circumstances leading to their permanent settlement in the island. The dynamics of their cultural integration and identity formation are examined based on the insights provided by the Creole society model but new categories of analysis are employed in the application of this model. In doing so, the Indians inability to maintain their traditional culture is clearly explained. The book also seeks to locate and explain the incorporation of Indians into Grenada s social structure and explores the nature of race relations, particularly, between Indians and Africans. Overall the book brings new insights into the understanding of Grenadian society in the period 1857-1950.
