In facing the complex problems involved in the rapid industrialization of a basically rural economy, India has had to deal with the unique size and structure of the population, the traditionally low level of wages, and other special cultural and occupational factors. Against this background Professor Charles A. Myers discusses the development of the First and Second Five-Year Plans, the recruitment and commitment of an industrial labor force, still largely tied to the villages, and the problems of both management and labor in the development of the labor movement. In his final section he treats the special role of government in arbitrating and regulating industrial conditions and examines the part played by international assistance in raising the standards of skill, both technical and managerial.
