Gender and Development
Theoretical, Empirical and Practical Approaches. The International Library of Critical Writings in Economics Series 130
This two-volume set brings together a selection of the most significant contributions to the field of gender and development. The key emphasis is on economic analysis, with some articles informed by an interdisciplinary approach. The volumes cover a variety of topics, including conceptual and methodological questions, statistical accounting of women's work, issues related to the family, households and caring labour, poverty, employment and labour markets, structural adjustment policies and social change. The collection will be useful for economists as well as for other social scientists interested in the field of development, women's work, labor markets, and feminist economics. Although the volumes are addressed to an academic audience interested in development issues in general and gender and development in particular, they will also be of interest to government agencies, international organizations, NGOs and other institutions and individuals working on development, policy-making and action from a gender perspective.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'... a tremendously thorough, carefully considered and organized work, with 54 articles published between 1977 and 2000 presented chronologically by field... Beneria's introductory overview immeasurably helps what may at first seem like the daunting task of taking all this work. In it, we are given a succinct narrative of conceptual developments in the field, as well as a brief summary of each of the volumes' ten parts... It is an invaluable and impressive resource for anyone working in or thinking about gender and development; I recommend it highly.' -- Elissa Braunstein, Feminist Economics 'This massive, two-volume collection of key articles on the economics of gender and development fills a need for a major reference work in this growing field of research and practice ... the collection will surely serve its intended function as an essential reference work for students and practitioners of gender relations in developing economies.' -- Susan Greenhalgh, Population and Development Review
