This collection comprises rare journals, novels, pamphlets and other printed materials that describe the strategies and ideologies of anti-caste movements and left movements at an intense period of political activity—the 1920s-70s. The collection provides a starting point to understanding how and where they intersected—as well as when they were in conflict—given that they both share a fundamental interest in the politics and futures of labour. Materials are in English and Telugu.
