About this book

The book examines the extent to which Amartya Sen's conception of 'development as freedom' can be a guide for development policy. It argues that the theoretical foundations of the conception need to be expanded, and that it needs to give more attention to collective and historical dimensions if it is to address poverty effectively.

Reviews

'Deneulin writes with clarity, economy, and purpose, and synthesizes and adds to a series of literatures in philosophy, history and social theory that are extremely relevant for assessing and deepening the capability approach.' - Des Gasper, Journal of Human Development and Capabilities
