48 pages. Follow-up work to "The Workingman's Revolt: The Vancouver Asiatic Exclusion Rally of 1907." "... Jarvis has dug into the historical record, and gone to the original sources... and discovered that things were not as we had been told. The eventual decision by waffling federal authorities to expel the 'Komogata Maru' was a reluctant bow to overwhelming public opinion, that was firmly opposed to changing B.C.'s population." - from introduction. Some black and white ilustrations. Above-average wear. Unmarked. A worthy reference copy.
