The fourth and the final of Basu's collected essays corpus, this volume is a collection of his inter-discliplinary essays straddling several of the social sciences and also the philosophical foundation of economics. This is a collection of relatively less technical papers and should be of interest to students of not just economics but also sociology and politics. Most of the essays have a development slant and several make explicit reference to India, making the book especially relevant for scholars and policymakers in India. The essays deal with wide-ranging issues-from philosophical questions, to social custom and culture, to questions that have traditionally been of interest to the sociologist and political scientist (gender, household behaviour, politics of globalization, etc.). The volume includes the author's most cited papers, such as 'Gender and Say' and 'The Growth and Decay of Custom'. An introductory chapter surveys and connects the terrain spanned by these essays. This volume illustrates how economics can, with careful handling, be taken to concerns beyond its traditional disciplinary boundaries.
