Conceived as a festschrift in honour of Jan Breman, this multidisciplinary volume provides an incisive analysis of various aspects of present-day Gujarati society. By concentrating on the conditions of Dalits, tribals, landless agricultural labourers and industrial workers, the 16 original essays gathered here provide a vivid account of the paradoxes and social consequences of both industrial and agricultural growth.
