Peasant Movements in Contemporary India

This paper examines ways in which peasant movements transform, institutionalise themselves, forge new collective identities and articulate new strategies to ensure peasant survival and resistance against domination in contemporary India. Focusing on four villages that were witness to the Tebhaga, Telangana and the Naxalite movements it sociologically analyses the socio-economic status of the peasantry, nature of their participation in those movements and processes of articulation of resistance against the emerging structure of domination in the wider state-level context.
