India: Development and Participation

 
Amartya Sen (Author) Jean Dre'ze (Author)
Synopsis In comparative international perspective, the Indian economy has done reasonably well in the period following the economic reforms initiated in the early nineties. However, relatively high aggregate economic growth coexists with the persistence of endemic deprivation and deep social failures. Jean Dreze and Amartya Sen relate this imbalance to the continued neglect, in the post-reform period, of public involvement in crucial fields such as basic education, health care, social security, environmental protection, gender equity, and civil rights, and also to the imposition of new burdens such as the accelerated expansion of military expenditure. Further the authors link these distortions of public priorities with deep seated inequalities of social influence and political power. The book discusses the possibility of addressing these biases through more active democratic practice.
