This book concerns the broad theme of globalisation and
labour, particularly female labour. Specifically, it
applies the labour geography approach to examine
contemporary forms of labour control, conflict, and
response under a globalisation regime, through four
diverse in-depth empirical case studies set in the Indian state of Kerala. Questioning
global stereotypes, it argues that labour becomes actively involved in the very process
of globalisation and the expansion of capital.

Pauperism and pauperization are two of the most
persistent and widespread phenomena in India. While a
fierce debate rages on the line separating the poor from
the non-poor, there is scant discussion on the huge mass
of paupers - not less than one-fifth of the country’s
population - living in destitution. Rural and urban case
studies conducted in the state of Gujarat highlight the
ordeal of these paupers, the non-labouring poor unable to take care of themselves,
the migrant labour driven away from the village and back for lack of work, and an
underclass redundant to demand, often experienced by the
better-off as a nuisance.

This work analyses the theoretical and philosophical
frames of new (biotic) property, and assesses how its
altered metaphysics inscribes itself in the politics of
genetic resources. It probes how rights get -framed-
within and by law and attempts to uncover the -cunning-
or duplicitous nature of these rights-the chasm between
their intended benefits and their actual outcomes.
