Capital Accumulation and Workers' Struggle in Indian Industrialisation:
The Case of Tata Iron and Steel Company 1910-197e
By SATYA BRATA DATTA 1990. Pp.295. Royal. ISBN81-7074-0338-X.Rs.200
A study of the twin themes of capital accumulation and worker struggle in interaction with each other at the level of enterprise entails combining business and labour history;
indeed linking the paths of business and labour history has rarely received systematic attention within existing economic history research in India. This study attempts to fill this gap keeping in mind that the logic of inter-capital competition as a dynamic force in the process of capital accumulation (i.e. expansion of capital) is underestimated by Bravennan's (and thereby Marx's) critics.
