"The Economic Status of Women under Capitalism" explores the usefulness of institutionalist economics in analyzing the economic oppression of women and in promoting progressive social and economic change. The book is divided into three parts. Part one, Exploring Connections, examines the relationship between institutionalist economics and feminist theory. Part two, Extending our Analysis, offers a critique of feminist and institutionalist theory and suggests ways to extend these approaches to be more inclusive and progressive. The final part, Examining the Issues of Gender, assesses the economic status of women in several different countries - the United States, the former Soviet Union and Japan - providing a "real-life" context for the theoretical issues raised in Parts one and two. Working from a radical institutionalist perspective, the contributors to "The Economic Status of Women under Capitalism" share a concern over the economic status of women and a belief that the dominant approaches to economic analysis are limited in their ability to analyze the subordination of women and prescribe policy responses. As such, this volume should be welcomed as a significant contribution in its own right as well as providing impetus for future debate.
