Agrarian Changes in the Times of (Neo-liberal) 'Crises'

Revisiting Attached Labour in Haryana

We are grateful to the advisory group of the Review of Rural Affairs for putting together this issue. The members of the advisory group are Ramesh Chand, Surinder S Jodhka, D Narasimha Reddy and P S Vijayshankar.



The paper draws heavily from the background paper I prepared for the World Bank study on Poverty and Social Exclusion (2011). I am grateful to Maitreyi Das for her support and inputs. An earlier version of this paper was presented at the department of sociology, University of Delhi and at a seminar at the University of Oxford organised by Alpa Shah and Barbara Harriss-White. I am also grateful to Sneha Sudha Komath and Ujithra Ponniah for their comments on an earlier draft of this paper. The usual disclaimers apply.
