Description - Amartya Sen's Work and Ideas by Bina Agarwal

This volume is the only one of its kind to explore Sen's work from a gender perspective. While Sen has given a number of interviews in recent years, here his answers here are long and reflective, and cover ground not previously covered by any other interview. This informative book also features several pieces of new material including: - a reference section with five of Sen's own papers - a 'conversation' between Sen and Homi Bhabha (Professor at Harvard University) on the question of gender, culture and identity - two additional questions in interviews conducted by guest editors. Featuring multidisciplinary contributions, this volume makes a fascinating read for economists and non-economists interested in Sen's work generally, for those interested in a gender perspective on the concepts and issues discussed, and for policymakers, UN agencies, funding bodies, and non-governmental organizations. This book was previously published as a special issue of the journal "Feminist Economics".
