Product Description


A lively survey of economic thought from the late seventeenth century to the present... A thought-provoking and entertaining read. Katie Barclay, Women's History Network Magazine. Provides an original and comprehensive intellectual history of gender-related economic issues that may well complement - and challenge - more traditional histories of economic ideas. Daniela Donnini Maccio, Storia del pensiero economico. The story is complicated, interesting and well worth telling. Folbre tells it well. She brings to bear an impressive measure of erudition and analytical sweep to knit together themes from very disperate thinkers and very diverse times into a largely coherent whole. Indraneel Dasgupta, The Economic Record

About the Author

Nancy Folbre, Professor of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, has won international recognition for her research on the interface between feminist theory and political economy. Her empirical research focuses on the amount and value of time devoted to care of dependents. In addition to many journal articles, she has published a number of books including The Invisible Heart: Economics and Family Values (New Press, 2001) and four editions of the popular Field Guide to the U.S. Economy. A recipient of a five-year fellowship from the MacArthur Foundation, she is also a Charlotte Perkins Gilman Fellow of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, a past president of the International Association for Feminist Economics and an Associate Editor of the journal Feminist Economics.
