A timely and monumental recollection, this consideration captures the crossing of the sea undertaken by immigrants from India in the late 1800s. Illustrating their travels from their home country to colonial South Africa, this narrative demonstrates the multiple beginnings that made up the indentured experience for these wandering exiles. The overview explores the terrain of the everyday by focusing on religious and cultural expressions, leisure activities, power relations on the plantations, the weapons of resistance, and forms of collaboration that were developed in conflicts with the colonial overlords. Fascinating accounts brimming with desire and tender mercies—as much as with oppression and exploitation—show that the indentured were as much agents as they were victims and silent witnesses, painting a clear portrait of both cooperation and discord between Indians and Africans. Revising the contours of South African Indian historiography, this investigation expertly weaves its themes into the mainstream of Southern African studies, highlighting an often overlooked minority community.
