THE OTHER MIDDLE PASSAGE Journal of a Voyage from Calcutta to Trinidad, 1858

Product no.: HP029

Ron Ramdin

In the wake of the African slavers there followed the 'Coolie ships' from India, carrying Indian indentured labourers to replace African slaves on the colonial plantations in the Caribbean.

With the first shipment of indentured Indians to British Guiana (Guyana) in 1838, a new system of slavery was introduced, and between then and 1917, more than half a million Indians were transported to the region.

This book reproduces the journal from one of those long and hazardous journeys, and reveals the stark terror that overshadowed the entire 180-day voyage.
