About this product
- DescriptionReleased to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the arrival of the Komagata Maru, this expanded and full revised edition will stand as the most thoroughly researched account of the torious Komagata Maru incident. The event centres on the ship's nearly four hundred Punjabi passengers, who sought entry into Canada at Vancouver in the summer of 1914, only to be chased away by a Canadian warship. This story became a symbol of prejudicial immigration policies, which Canadians today reject, and served to fuel the emerging anti-British movement in India. It deserves the careful re-examination it gets in this thoroughly updated edition that provides a contemporary perspective on a defining moment in Canadian, British Empire, and Indian history.
- Author BiographyHugh J.M. Johnston is a professor emeritus in history at Simon Fraser University. Among his publications are two other books on Punjabis in Canada, Jewels of the Qila: The Remarkable Story of an Indo-Canadian Family (UBC Press, 2012) and The Four Quarters of the Night: The Life Journey of an Emigrant Sikh (1995).
