With Cold War politics lost as the organizing principle behind international politics, development has become the most import policy goal of every international organization. There is an underside (and a human side) to development, and feminism has made inroads into the highly technical debates and frothy prophecies by examining what the future really holds for the people who will live it. This book highlights the ways in which feminist analysis has contributed to a richer understanding of international development and globalization. By combining theoretical, empirical, and political perspectives and discussing cutting-edge debates around development, globalization, economic restructuring, and feminist economics, Gender, Development and Globalization presents the ultimate primer on global feminist economics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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
""Gender, Development, and Globalization powerfully unmasks the traditional view that narrowly-defined economic development, led by increased market expansion, is the best path toward creating growth and prosperity. Carefully dissecting feminist, economics, and development theory, Beneria uses the lens of feminist economics to develop an alternative understanding and set of solutions that include a broader conception of work and more attention to the role of gender. This book is a 'must read' for those interested in understanding the complex dynamics of an increasing connected world."
-Randy Albelda, Professor of Economics, author of "Economics and Feminism: Disturbances in the Field
"This is a valuable book for anumber of reasons. It provides an overview of the impact of globalization on gender relations. It synthesizes the key contributions of feminist analysis in the field of economics. And it reminds us that the politics of redistribution is as much a part of a feminist agenda of transformation as the politics of recognition."
-Nalia Kabeer, author of "Reversed Realities: Gender Hierarchies in Development Thought
