The Voyage of the Komagata Maru, expanded edition The Sikh Challenge to Canada's Colour Bar


Default Title

This is the revised and enlarged edition of a popular title by SFU Professor, Hugh Johnston. This updated edition draws in new research -- exploring the legal issues surrounding the incident and delving deeper into the motives of the passengers and their leaders and supporters -- and revisits the previous edition’s assessments in light of insight gained over the intervening decades.  Now expanded by more than 50 percent, The Voyage of the Komagata Maru is still the only comprehensive historical account of the Komagata Maru incident -- a story of immigration, empire, politics, and human rights, which Canadians increasingly recognize as a critical moment in this country’s history.
