SAILORS, SLAVES, AND IMMIGRANTS — BONDAGE IN THE INDIAN OCEAN WORLD, 1750—1914

Throughout the history of the mankind, the slaves travelled across the oceans, same as the unfree immigrants and convicts. However, it shall be noted that the people's understanding of the modernity has been significantly narrowed by the conventional historical paradigm relating to the Atlantic World. This volume presents the brilliant study fully contrasting with the common and regular understanding of the relationships that used to exist in the Indian Ocean back in the nineteenth century.

This work is demonstrating that the nations that used to struggle against the slavery in the distant past did accept the limits on the labour freedom. According to the reviews performed by the major experts in the field, the content of this publication has perfectly brought together numerous historical debates; the author has successfully challenged many of the ideas related to the sea-bound labour deriving from the pretty exaggerated attention to the Atlantic ocean.

This book will be recommended to anyone with the interest in the naval history and the problems addressed by the author in his work who will find the information not readily available in most of the other documents on this topic.
