Peripheral Labour by Shahid Amin

Book Description

This volume takes an alternative look at the notion of 'wage-workers'. The contributors suggest that the idea of a 'pure' working class should be reconsidered and examine specific South Asian and Latin American case studies. A large part of the working class in the so-called third world and also in the main capitalist countries is either free (but coerced through non-economic means) or does hidden work labor e.g. as formally self-employed producers. By rethinking the fundamental assumptions of 'classical' labor and working-class history, the volume contributes to the development of a non-Eurocentric historiography.

Event, Metaphor, Memory by Shahid Amin Event, Metaphor, Memory, Paperback (October 1995)

Taking Gandhi's statements about civil disobedience to heart, in February 1922 residents from the villages around the north Indian market town of Chauri Chaura attacked the local police station. This title explores the ways it has been remembered, interpreted, and used as a metaphor for the Indian struggle for independence.
