Its potential, small a work though it be when contrasted with Alex Haley's emotive venture in Roots, might - just might - enable some of us to realize how much is lost in ignoring or despising one's ethno-biography, seeing how much respect is gained when others define theirs, as Dr. Sue-A-Quan has done so well. Richard Allsopp, Former Acting Principal, Queen's College, Georgetown, Guyana. Director, Caribbean Lexicography Project - UWI, Cave Hill, Barbados. CANE REAPERS is a valuable addition to the new literature on Caribbean Chinese communities, and should find its place on all library bookshelves which are interested in this topic. The text comes alive with the names of many hitherto forgotten immigrants with their multitude of problems and experiences under the indenture system. Walton Look Lai, History Department, University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad & Tobago Students of Guyanese social history will find it illuminates a fascinating corner of their history that has had little attention up to now. Guyanese of Chinese descent will find much to interest, horrify and amuse them in the story of how their ancestors came to Guyana and how they fared once they got there. Laura J. Hall, Adjunct Lecturer in American Studies, University of California, Berkeley.
