Sunlight and Other Fears

from the manufacturer

Time and again Amartya Sen, one of the polymaths of our times, has stirred our thoughts and world-views through his writings and speeches. Intrigued by the questions of social justice and welfare, Sen addresses some of the fundamental issues of our time in this new collection of essays: poverty, hunger, education, globalization, media and freedom of speech, injustice, inequality, exclusion, and exploitation. The eleven essays presented here are written with a passion and conviction masked by a gently persuasive style and characterized by an undogmatic engagement with differing points of view. Sen asserts that public policy should swing sharply towards the poor, the illiterate, and those suffering from ill health and malnourishment, and does so not just by appealing to justice and compassion but by relying on rigorous intellectual and academic analysis. The essays were first published in the Indian literary publication The Little Magazine, and have been freshly updated by Sen for this collection.
