What has long been the most thoroughly researched account of the Komagata Maru incident is now released in a new and expanded edition. At the centre of the event are the ship's nearly 400 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 that 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.
