Work and Social Change in Asia : Essays in Honour of Jan Breman
New Delhi : Manohar, 2003; ISBN 81-7304-485-6; 277 pp.
Most of the publications by Dutch sociologist Jan Breman deal with labour relations in India and in Indonesia, both historical and contemporary, urban and rural, and with issues related to development cooperation. Breman's writings play an important role in the national and international debates on these themes among researchers and policy makers. His writings are often cited and his arguments regularly discussed.
The present collection of essays reflects Breman's wide-ranging interests. Asian and European scholars and friends discuss aspects of changing labour relations in South and South-East Asia. With contributions from C. Baks, P. van der Veer, W. van Schendel, K.P. Kannan, M. Rutten, R. Saptari, W. Wolters, P. Mohapatra, Sediono M.P. Tjondronegoro, M. van der Linden.
Also includes a bibliography of Breman's writings.
