Rural Artisans in India
The Book ‘Rural Artisans in India –Globalisation Context’ is an attempt with unique methodology and analysis with Marxian out look. It has gone into many aspects of contemporary Indian Rural Artisan Industry which has struggled and strangled with onslaught of British rule first and then the disturbing feets of public policies of independent India. The book unveils the actors and factors behind the virtual collapse artistic occupations in rural India and the impacts of globalisation which further pauperised millions of skilled and semi-skilled rural artisans. It has focussed on the situation prevailing in handicrafts and leather industry in Andhra Pradesh. How the series of policies adopted by the successive governments have played with the existence of these industries has been discussed. During the inter-pretation, there are many comparisons between different trades and of different states and countries. Especially, it provides appropriate information on policy formulations of China. While going through the book the readers may appreciate the way the primary data has been analysed by choosing entire artisan families as the sample for the study. The results are eye openers and need a sustained research and policy perspective to provide new lease of life to the rural artisans and bring back their lost pride.
