Labour in the Indian Economy

Labour and Development: Essays in Honour of Professor T S Papola edited by K P Kannan, Rajendra P Mamgain and Preet Rustagi, New Delhi: Academic Foundation, 2017; pp 722, ₹ 1,495 (hardcover).


To anyone who has ever been associated with the annual conferences of the Indian Society of Labour Economics, this volume under review brings memories of two elegant persons who used to lighten up these gatherings with their wit, energy and wisdom. They are T S Papola and Preet Rustagi, whose brilliant careers had been cut short with their untimely deaths in 2015 and 2017 respectively. The volume under review is a collection of essays on labour in the Indian economy, compiled in honour of T S Papola, and Preet Rustagi is one of its three editors.

This collection of essays is indeed a tour de force, a good reference material for any scholar interested in labour issues in India. Running into 722 pages, there are 21 essays in this volume, in addition to an introductory article written by the editors, and three short pieces remembering the life and work of Papola.
