Review quote

"Excellent! Lots of important information in manageable graphics, tables and charts. Great introduction of statistical information to highlight gender inequality."--Joan A. Francis, Atlantic Union College"An extraordinary achievement in the search for an appropriate and effective yardstick for gauging human development. Treatment of the contributions of women to development timely and superbly done. I highly recommend HDR 1995 as a main text or supplement for courses on development, gender and multi-culture studies."--John Mukum Mbaku, Weber State University"An important contribution to the discussion of gender equality. No other group is as systematically discriminated against as women."--Dr. Richard Skolnik, Tiffin University"Great! Nice to have all this info under one cover. Good balance of analysis and data."--Bayer, Swarthmore College"This is a very useful document that lends itself to analysis of development policy issues at both graduate and upper-level undergraduate levels."--Goran Hyden, University of Florida"Extremely valuable compendium on women's/gender issues and gender inequality. May use to complement rather than replace Human Development Report 1993 (current text) which covers people, participation and privatization."--Jeffrey Riedinger, Michigan State University"[A] pioneer among UN documents in its frank comparisons among member states on many sensitive matters." --Population and Development Review"This volume develops new measures for gender in equality. It also synthesizesthe research in the field. With almost 50 pages of tables in the Appendix, as well as detailed tables interwoven into the text, this book is a data treasure trove and can be adapted for any number of courses."--Catherine Sveikauskas, Trinity College"The discussion of the Concept of Development is an immense improvement. I also find the data tables extremely useful for student papers as well as for my own research."--Susan Randolph, University of Connecticut"An unparalleled reference source for a global view of the critical dimensions of human development."--Tagi Segafi-Nejad, Loyola Collegeshow more
