CAPABILITIES, FREEDOM, AND EQUALITY Amartya Sen's Work from a Gender Perspective
CAPABILITIES, FREEDOM, AND EQUALITY Amartya Sen's Work from a Gender Perspective
Description
From the Jacket:

This unique volume is the first to examine Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen's ideas through the lens of the gender. Renowned for his humanitarian approach to economics, his contributions have been crucial to the development of several aspects of feminist economics and gender analysis. This book outlines the range and usefulness of his work from a gender perspective while also exploring some of its silences and implicit assumptions.

The result in a collection of groundbreaking and insightful essays which cover major topics in Sen's work, such as capability approach, freedom, social choice, justice, agency, 'missing women', and development well-being. Perspectives have been drawn from both developing and developed countries, with most of the authors applying Sen's concepts to cultural, geographic, and historical contexts which differ from his original applications.

The multidisciplinary volume makes for a compelling read for both economists and scholars from other disciplines, as well as for policymakers and practitioners.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
