About This Book

As a specialist on India, the economist Daniel Thorner is remembered for his deep commitment to the cause of Indian nationalism, and his understanding of the country's social, economic and political complexity. As a tribute to Thorner's wide-ranging and far-reaching contributions to Indian economics, Thorner's wife, Alice Thorner, and his good friend, P. N. Haksar, have put together a series of lectures in association with the Indian Statistical Institute. This collection reflects the breadth of Thorner's own range of interests, encompassing themes in the social sciences and issues in the fields of public policy and human rights. This book comprises nine lectures, together with a hitherto-unpublished paper by Thorner himself, and an introduction by Utsa Patnaik, Professor of Economics at Jawarhlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
