From Field to Factory explores the impact of a modern factory on a Bengal agricultural village and the impact of the village's social and ideological systems on the factory. Morton Klass provides ethnographic data on life and work in both the village and factory and assesses theories of community, caste, village religion, and industrialization. This book will interest sociologists and anthropologists interested in South Asia, community structure, caste, village-level religion, and the anthropology of work. Previously published in 1978 by the Institute for the Study of Human Issues.
