Marxism has played a crucial role—directly and indirectly—in the development of social analysis in India. This collection of essays addresses the contemporary significance of Marxism in the study of society, polity, and economy.

The problems of inequality, class, and conflict in India are discussed with reference to its agrarian social structure. The analysis brings out the diverse and changing meanings of class within the Marxist tradition itself.

It also provides an overview of the changes that have taken place in the concept of and approaches to the study of class since the time of Marx.
