This book traces various interesting aspects of the story of Indian labor from the eighteenth century to the present day, assessing the degrees of continuity with past practice, and whether the modern assumptions about work--its separation from other aspects of daily life, its commoditization, its class implications--have often been reflected in Indian experience. The essays propose a number of general points on how ideological and religious ferment accompanies economic change, and also treat particulars that resonate against entrenched social conditions and attitudes. As a whole the book forms a comparative story of the concepts of labor and of social hierarchy.

Review:

`The collection of scholarly essays, arranged partly chronologically and partly thematically, bring to light the continuity of past practices and their modern equivalent ... this volume is certainy an important contribution towards an understanding of the experience of Dalits and tribal people
in both colonial and post-colonial India.'
S. Sathianathan, Asian Affairs, October 1994
