Rural Labour Relations in India

Karin Kapadia (Editor) Jens Lerche (Editor) T.J. Byres (Editor)
Synopsis This volume is about the emerging development trajectories of rural labour in India, based on studies from its regions and states. Its overarching theme is rural class conflict and the result of such conflict; and the intimate link between this and the nature and impact of state intervention is considered. Vigorous emancipatory processes are identified, and the limitations of contra-dictions inherent in such processes are examined. Both powerful general trends and the significant regional variations are distinguished. This is a landmark volume of considerable significance, which adds greatly to our knowledge and understanding of rural labour in India. Its interest will extend beyond India, to all who are concerned with rural labour.
