Description - Postcolonialism Meets Economics by S. Charusheela

In the last half century, economics has taken over from anthropology the role of drawing the powerful conceptual worldviews that organize knowledge and inform policy in both domestic and international contexts. Until now however, the colonial roots of economic theory have remained relatively unstudied. This book changes that. The wide array of contributions to this book draw on the rapidly growing body of postcolonial studies to critique both orthodox and heterodox economics. This book addresses a large gap in postcolonial studies, which lacks the type of sophisticated analysis of economic questions that it displays in its analysis of culture. The intellectual and disciplinary terrain covered within this book spans economics, history, anthropology, philosophy, literary theory, political science and women's studies. With contributions from such leading scholars as R. Radhakrishnan, Michael Shapiro and Robert Dimand, this impressive new book brings two massive subjects together for the first time. This is essential reading for students and researchers involved with economics and postcolonial studies, as well as being of interest across the social science and humanities spectrum. Drucilla K.
