Book Review
Ashore without a command--and on half-pay to boot--Jack Aubrey's prayers are answered when Stephen Maturin shows up with a secret mission for him. The two men have been ordered to the Cape of Good Hope. There they hope to dislodge the French garrisons on the islands of Mauritius and La Reunion.

Paperback

Book Description
The island of Mauritius lies in the middle of the Indian Ocean, about 550 miles east of Madagascar.

Review
'An excellent introduction to the ethnography of Mauritius...offering much to those requiring a "hands on" introduction to ethnicity and identity and should further stimulate the sociological community towards pursuing research in similar locations.' --Anthropos

'This book will be an essential resource for scholars interested in Mauritian society; it should also find a wider audience among those concerned with the nature of ethnic identities.' --Ethnic and Racial Studies

'Eriksen brings a better understanding of how religion, gender, language, race, national political system, state bureaucracy, ethnicity and division of labour determine the parameters of individuals in Mauritian society and other dimensions of Mauritian life.' --Nations and Nationalism
