This new Major Work from Routledge is a five-volume collection of the key critical assessments of Amartya Sen (b. 1933), probably best known for his work on famine, human development and welfare economics. Sen is one of the few modern academics who has commanded much respect and recognition from across the intellectual spectrum. His work--for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1998--simultaneously embraces social choice theory and economic development, thus breaking the barrier between mathematized 'high theory' and 'real world' economics.
With an introduction newly written by the editor that places the collected work in its intellectual and historical context, this collection is destined to be welcomed as an invaluable resource for both reference purposes and as a contribution to the study of Amartya Sen.
