Essays on India's Working Class

Working Class Movement in India in the Wake of Globalization edited by Jose George, Manoj Kumar and Dharmendra Ojha (New Delhi: Manohar), 2012; pp 470, Rs 1,295.

Working Class Movement in India in the Wake of Globalization is an anthology edited and written by academics and activists Jose George, Manoj Kumar and Dharmendra Ojha mapping the evolution of the working-class movement in India. An outcome of a seminar that was conducted in September 2009 by the Department of Civics and Politics, University of Mumbai, the book is dedicated to the eminent communist leader M K Pandhe (who passed away in August 2011). Pandhe has contributed a foreword and an article.

The book’s unique position of being between the worlds of academia and activism enables it to track the concept of class as a point of departure for organised resistance from the period of its emergence in colonial India to its development in post-Independence India. It also engages with the challenges confronting such resistance in the era of globalisation, characterised by privatisation and weak labour unions.
