The South Asian diaspora came into being with the end of slavery in the British Empire. Labourers were recruited in the Indian sub-continent for indentured labour schemes in places such as Asia, Africa, Mauritius, Fiji, the Caribbean, and the French colonies, which was followed by 'free' immigration to these and other countries, including Britain. This book offers detailed accounts of the experience of the migrant communities.
