Trouble at the Mill

Factory Law and the Emergence of Labour Question in Late Nineteenth-Century Bombay

Aditya Sarkar

  • Explores industrial labor and labor relations in one of the biggest port towns of Asia and centers of global trade--Bombay focusing on the cotton textile industry.
  • Breaking away from conventional labor histories, it brings together legal and social history to locate Bombay's factories and industrial relations within larger global movements.
  • Raises a number of questions which have only rarely been thematized by labour historians--the ideologies of factory reform, the politics of factory commissions, the routines of factory inspection, and the earliest waves of strike action in the cotton textile industry.
