Chapter Summary

The authors use the case study of Chinese in Mauritius to investigate the complex mechanisms and processes involved in the transplantation of groups of people within the colonial context, and in particular seeks to create a tableau within which the construction of a mythology of migration is set against the realities of the processes of negotiation and communication with the larger society. In this section, they focus on the urbanisation of the population of Chinese origin in Mauritius in 1952. They tabulate Chinese residents in the district of Port Louis and the towns of the Central Plateau.
