Why was the Indian indentureship system ended? Who were the main players in the final end of the labour scheme? This book examines the end of a labour system which lasted from 1838 until 1920 in various territories throughout the British Empire. It looks at methods of agitations in territories such as South Africa, Mauritius, Fiji and the British West Indies. This book is a comparative study of the abolition of the Indian indentureship system which shows the global interconnectedness of abolition, with a strong subaltern focus.
