This article deals with the continuities and discontinuities between recruitment of labour for migration within Tamil Nadu and to other countries, specifically, Malaya and then looks at the process of labour control in both the 'enclaves' and the 'hinterland'. A brief discussion of the articulation theory and the deproletarianisation theory to explain the process of labour migration and control between Tamil Nadu and Malaya from circa 1840 to 1938 follows with a postscript on the ethnography of colonialism.
