Land and Labour in Indian Agriculture: Discourses on Growth and Equity presents empirically grounded analytical essays on principal concerns of the agrarian question in India. It brings together important contributions from eminent experts focusing on agricultural and rural development, land and labour, and policymaking. Looking at agricultural development as a means of improving the quality of life in rural areas, the essays capture shifts not only in policymaking but also in ground realities and explain why the rural crisis persists in India. The editor’s introductions put in perspective the essays on the evolution of the agrarian discourse, policy deliberations, and performance and trends in rural development.

The series ‘Social Change in Contemporary India’ brings together key texts published in the prestigious journal Social Change, from 1971 till present times. These writings, most of which are considered canonical, address important issues in health, education, poverty and agriculture with special focus on disadvantaged groups. These writings will help readers identify key points in the history of policymaking in India and major discourses and debates and their impact.
