2 Jean Dreze and Amartya Sen
An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions
Allen Lane: An Imprint of Penguin Books; London, UK; 2013; 1846147611 / 9781846147616; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
After two centuries of imperialism and colonial subjugation India attained its Independence in 1947. And in its attempt to earn the freedom of its people, the founding fathers adopted a firm and fair system of democracy to usher in a new chapter in the history of India. The economists place their argument in the period that lay hereafter and the basic flaws in the Indian system. They stress on the attention needed for the marginalized if there is a view to sustain growth and lead the development trajectory into a more dominant position. An Uncertain Glory: India And Its Contradictions explicates the progress of the nation as it overcame the economic lag to earning a growth rate that soon made it the second fastest growing economy in the world. For Dreze and Sen the focus however lies elsewhere and it is in determining the essential needs of the people and bridging the gap of opportunities that they believe there is a chance for India to cash in its true realization of freedom. They discuss the deep inequalities that are entrenched in the Indian system and how the resulting failure to develop human capabilities is stunting its growth. In another vein the economists believe the importance of sustainable growth that is also environmentally conscious and in that respect they lay out the failures of the economy to develop their backbone of infrastructure adequately. The incompetent tackling of public resources that has accrued to India’s phenomenal growth in developing social services and infrastructure is a major concern for the economists. They believe that the quality of life in India is the major concern and therefore the needs and social deprivations of the majority of the people who are among the lower rungs are of priority basis and need to be addressed. The authors lay out a premise for a stronger democratic ethic that concentrates on these neglected corners of Indian policy in this enlightening treatise. Printed Pages: 448. 037560

3 Jean Dreze and Amartya Sen
India - Development and Participation
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195678575 / 9780195678574; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
India's economy over the last decade looks in many ways like a success story after a major economic crisis in 19 91, followed by bold reform measures, the economy has experienced a rapid economic growth rate, more foreign investment, and a boom in the information technology sector. Yet many in the country still suffer from crushing poverty, and social and political unrest remains a problem. These essays by leading academics, policymakers, and industrialists examine India's recent economic sucesses and their social and cultural context. India's rate of economic growth after the 1991 reforms were instituted reached a remarkable 7 percent for three consecutive years, from 1994 to 1997. Several contributors to the volume ask what this means for the nation as a whole. In his essay 'Democracy and Secularism in India', Amartya Sen argues that economic progress is not the only way to measure a nation's performance. Other contributors examine the actual effect India's economic growth has had on reducing poverty and recommend policies to empower the poor. 033683

6 Khadija Haq and Richard Ponzio; Foreword By Amartya Sen
Pioneering the Human Development Revolution: An Intellectual Biography of Mahbub Ul Haq
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195695135 / 9780195695137; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mahbub ul Haq, the father of human development, shaped development philosophy and practice in the four decades from the 1960s to 1990s. He shifted the focus of development discourse to people and their well-being, monitoring its progress through the Human Development Index. Haq initiated a global movement involving policymakers, scholars, and activists who adopted his innovative ideas for people-centric development where education, health, and political and economic empowerment together became the yardstick for measuring a country’s performance. This intellectual biography is a tribute to Haq’s pioneering work. Comprising essays by Haq’s intellectual partners and colleagues, the volume traces the evolution of his ideas, especially the links he established between economic growth, people’s well-being, and poverty alleviation. Each essay situates and discusses his contribution to the larger development debate and assesses the impact of his ideas on the contemporary global development agenda. 024313

8 Amartya Sen (Author) & Gopalkrishna Gandhi (Frwd)
The Country of First Boys
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 019945325X / 9780199453252; Hardcover; New; New; 
How do deprivations related to class, caste and gender interrelate? Why are our political leaders so good in saying what should be done without doing anything much about them? How should we think about Sanskrit and ancient India without adding religious colour? Why is it important to revive Nalanda, the world`s oldest university? The Country of First Boys is Amartya Sen`s intellectual journey through the past and present to seek an understanding of India`s history and the demands of its future. The themes of these essays include the hardened and extreme nature of inequality in India and what can be done about it. One of the many rewards of good schooling - denied to most Indians - includes the understanding that India is an integral part of a world civilization. Always sensitive to global communication and interaction, India`s own contributions vary from the development of a multiplicity of astronomically reasoned calendars and the invention of games like chess to the establishment of the foundations of several branches of modern mathematics. In this collection, Sen examines justice, identity, deprivation, inequalities, gender politics, education, the media and the importance of getting your priorities right. These are accessible yet pioneering essays that hold the kernel of many of his seminal works.
