Development and Change, Vol. 24 (1993) 'The array of articles in all three Dreze and Sen volumes is astounding.'
Thomas R. DeGregori, University of Houston, Africa Today, 4th Quarter 1992 `This is a valuable companion to the first two excellent volumes, all desirable additions to upper-division undergraduate and graduate collections in development economics.'
Social and Behavioral Sciences `Together with its companion volumes, this collection is a valuable contribution to the study of world hunger.'
Food Policy 'The volumes will become a standard reference for research in the field of hunger, famines and poverty and some of the papers are appropriate for reading lists in under- and post-graduate courses. The value of the approach to famine and hunger developed by Sen and Dreze ultimately lies in case studies.'
Athar Hussain, London School of Economics, The Economic Journal, Dec '91 `the authors are highly respected and the series draws on an extraordinary data base and comparison between countries. Bringing all this together is Amartya Sen. Lamont University Professor at Harvard, who has an unparalleled reputation for his work on famine, equity, and development economics ...
