Title:Policing the Savage: Segregation, Labor and State Medicine in the Andamans
Author:Sen, Satadru
Publication:The Journal of Asian Studies
Enumeration:v. 58 no. 3 (August 1999) p. 753-73
Abstract:A discussion of the colonial policies and practices the British directed at Andaman islanders in India in the second half of the 19th century. The writer focuses on three areas of colonial intervention--segregation, work, and medical practices--in order to demonstrate the tensions inherent in the British "colonizing" projects of disciplining thousands of Indian convicts sent to the island and of "civilizing" several thousand Andamnese tribals.
