9780415537490: Gender, Development and Globalization: Economics as if All People Mattered
Críticas:

"This new edition of a book that has already proved invaluable for those interested in gender and globalization from a development perspective will be on interest to an even wider audience. It provides an overview of the impact of globalization on gender relations in different regions of the world, expanded and updated to consider recent financial crisis. It synthesises the key contributions of feminist analysis in the field of economics, exposing both stated and hidden assumptions through which it is able to construct a world that is apparently free of injustice. And it reminds us that the politics of redistribution must be combined with the politics of recognition in feminist efforts to create a more just and sustainable international order."?Naila Kabeer, London School of Economics and Political Science

"Lourdes Benería, Günseli Berik and Maria Floro provide an indispensable compendium of the research on gender and development and a comprehensive road map to feminist economics thinking today. The authors unmask the neoliberal, market-driven policy agenda that has dominated development policy for decades and offer feminist, people-driven alternatives that promote democracy, economic well being and ecologically sustainable development."  ? Randy Albelda, Professor of Economics, author of Economics and Feminism: Disturbances in the Field

Praise for the Previous Edition:

"Lourdes Beneria is one of the leaders of thought on gender economics as well as development studies. In this wonderfully interesting book, Beneria discusses and critically assesses the recent trends in the analysis of gender and development issues. It is an accessible and very engaging account and enlightens both the fields as well as the challenges of globalization in the contemporary world." ? Amartya Sen, author of Development As Freedom and Poverty and Famines


"Behold 'Davos Man,' symbol of the international elite that meets regularly in luxurious fortresses to advance its global interests. This book strips off his gilded three-piece suit to reveal a lifeless, brittle piece of molded plastic. Lourdes Beneria's feminist deconstruction of mainstream economics urges us to look in new directions toward a more generous, sustainable, and democratic model of global development." ?Nancy Folbre, author of The Invisible Heart: Economics and Family Values

"Beneria ideas about what to do if we agree that "we cannot continue today on these lines" offer a positive sense that another way of thinking, at least, is already possible... Informative reviews of 1) the history of feminist influences on the field of economics, 2) the dominant ideas shaping development thinking during the late 20th Century and 3) the literature on labor dimensions of globalization and industrial restructuring make this book additionally useful as a reference." ? Journal of Planning Education and Research, Gwen Urey

Reseña del editor:

Gender, Development, and Globalization is the leading primer on global feminist economics and development. Lourdes Benería, a pioneer in the field of feminist economics, is joined in this second edition by Gunseli Berik and Maria Floro to update the text to reflect the major theoretical, empirical, and methodological contributions and global developments in the last decade. Its interdisciplinary investigation remains accessible to a broad audience interested in an analytical treatment of the impact of globalization processes on development and wellbeing in general and on social and gender equality in particular.

The revision will continue to provide a wide-ranging discussion of the strategies and policies that hold the most promise in promoting equitable and sustainable development. The authors make the case for feminist economics as a useful framework to address major contemporary global challenges, such as inequalities between the global South and North as well as within single countries; persistent poverty; and increasing vulnerability to financial crises, food crises, and climate change. The authors’ approach is grounded in the intellectual current of feminism and human development, drawing on Amartya Sen’s capability approach and focused on the importance of the care economy, increasing pressures faced by women, and the failures of neoliberal reforms to bring about sustainable development, reduction in poverty, inequality, and vulnerability to economic crisis.
