Missing Review of Labour


The well-designed half-page advertisement, profiling Economic & Political Weekly’s (EPW) “special and review issues published in 2017,” which appeared in a recent issue of the Review of Women’s Studies (RWS) (Vol 53, No 17) once again reminds us about the curious case of the missing Review of Labour. Earlier, the Review of Labour was a regular feature of the EPW and, for several years—from 2004 to 2011—this issue was usually brought out in the month of May. Its abrupt termination since 2011 has left an indelible sense of loss, renewed whenever May passes by.

A search of the EPW online archive (1966–2018) reveals that the Review of Labour first appeared in 1996. Since then, until 2011, it was published every year (except in 2010). In fact, in 1996, 1998, 2001 and 2002, there were two issues each that were published.
