The lack of knowledge of cross-border displacement is a
serious problem in our understanding of the societies of
South Asia. Millions of people have been affected by
cross border displacement. We know far too little about
the displacement, about the lives in exile. This study
examines the complex relations between the state and the
displaced in the Indian states of West Bengal and Tamil

Historical debates about capitalism, freedom and
primitive accumulation suggest Marxism accepts that,
where class struggle is global, capitalists employ unfree
workers. Labour-power as commodity means the free/unfree
distinction informs the process of becoming, being,
remaining, and acting as a proletariat.

This book highlights the changes in industrial
productivity after liberalization and also presents a
comparison of the performance of domestic- and foreign-
owned firms. Drawing on these analyses the book
recommends policy changes for the government to consider.
Breaking the artificial distinction between FDI and
trade, it implores the government to reduce
administrative obstacles in developing synergies between
the two. The authors argue that in bringing greater
competition and technology spinoffs for the local
industry, FDI is likely to benefit the economy.
