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. Day-by-day crimes against women's are rising and laws formulated to safeguard them seem insufficient to handle the situation. Now the debate on women's development has affected the intellectual community as well and there has developed a ranging discussions on what should constitute the agenda of women's development. It is this phenomena in its varied dimensions which the editor of these two volume set has tried to explore. She had provided an objective critique of the contradictions and consequences of the development and disparities. Tackling as it does varies concerns which are of growing importance in most developing countries, the collection in these 2 volumes set is of thought provoking critical reviews/papers. articles from India and abroad which would appeal to a wide range of readers.
