Ross identified four main deficiencies which, in a situation where "an uncivilized population" and land were "enormously disproportionate to each other", conduced to the "helplessness of the master" in relation to his labourers.
Ross recognized that such a practice was designed to secure the continuous labour "which is so necessary" and acknowledged that it could have the salutary effect of teaching labourers that they should pay for advantages they enjoyed and of reminding them of the planters' property rights.
Ross was satisfied that the Maltese in Grenada had rapidly lost caste and become vagrants because their status was "but little distinguished from the field negroes" and their actual condition was inferior to the ex-slaves' because they had not yet established provision grounds.

As Ross acknowledges at the start, such non-normative Jews are immediately suspect to many Israelis, who fear that Judaism is being used by poor foreigners to gain Israeli citizenship under the country's Law of Return, which nationalizes all Jews who choose to move to Israel.
Yet I was convinced that nearly everyone I met was sincere in his or her commitment to Judaism." It is clearly one of Ross's goals to support these Jews in their efforts to be recognized as such, and to subtly chastize orthodox rabbis who throw roadblocks in their way.
Ross focuses on several individuals in each chapter, which brings the research down to a personal and more readable level.
