Unshackling Slaves: Liberation and Adaptation of Ex-Apprentices. By Doctor Marina Carter. £9.99 plus shipping.

The 1st April 1839 was a momentous date in Mauritian history. It was the day appointed for the freeing of "praedial apprentices", commonly known as field slaves. Freed slaves left the plantations to begin new lives, marking the beginning of a social and economic revolution which would see massive waves of indentured immigrants replace the former slaves in the expanding sugar sector of Mauritius.
