A flood of literature on the problems concerning women in the more advanced countries have come out. But very few of these works could serve the desired objectives in terms of composite content and perspective. Now the debate on women's welfare and development has affected the intellectual community as well and there has developed a ranging discussion on what should constitute the agenda of women's developments. It is this phenomena in its varied dimensions, which the editor of this book had tried to explore. She had provided an objective critique of the contradictions and consequences of the development and disparities. There are some definite. Tackling as its does various concerns which are of growing importance in most developing countries, the collection in this book is of thoughts provoking critical reviews/ papers/ articles from India and abroad which would appeal to a wide range of readers.
