About Book
This book is an ethnographic study of a community of leather workers (the Rabi Das), and their transformations under global capitalism. The lived experiences of the Rabi Das are embedded within the broader context of India's economic liberalisation as well as in the local system of class and cultural relations in Bengali society. The various chapters in the book provide a detailed analysis of the changing nature of their conditions of employment, education, lifestyle and survival strategies. This edition also has a new Preface.
