'Post-Colonial Trinidad is a valuable addition to the ethnography of pre- and post-colonial Trinidad. . . The journal traces the evolution of the East Indian community from the time of its arrival in 1845 and the manner in which this community sought to reconstruct its life after the deconstruction occasioned by the trauma of departure from India . . . The great benefit of Post-Colonial Trinidad is that it clears up vast areas of darkness in the sociology of Caribbean Indianisme. It explains the antecedence of the Indo-Caribbean struggle to carve a space in the New World and gives a canvas against which current analyses can be made. The work is specific to Trinidad, but it closely relates to the situation in neighbouring Guyana and finds resonance in other mixed societies such as Mauritius and Fiji. It will remain relevant for a long time." - Journal of Latin American Studies "This work is truly unique, both in terms of its focus and its location at the very beginnings of a post-colonial Caribbean society. Although the journal was created almost fifty years ago, and much has changed, the central issues continue to inform theory and practical politics. The journal itself is well written and lively, and full of rich ethnographic detail." - B.W. Higman, Australian National University
