THE REPUBLIC OF HUNGER AND OTHER ESSAYS THE REPUBLIC OF HUNGER AND OTHER ESSAYS
by Utsa Patnaik

In the Third World imperialism presents itself through deflationary neo-liberal 'economic reforms', through a thrust towards free trade and through the spread of subservient agriculture.
Patnaik shows how these policies are causing unprecedented rural distress and widespread hunger in the developing countries (India, the Philippines, Mexico and in Sub-Saharan Africa).

Her book considers both the state of economics as a discipline, and the economic policies that ruin the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in the Third World.
A voice of sanity, conscience and true scholarship.

Utsa Patnaik is Professor of Economics at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. She is the author or co-author of The Making of History: Essays Presented to Irfan Habib (2002); 'The Long Transition: Essays on Political Economy' (1999); 'Peasant Class Differentiation: A Study in Method with Reference to Haryana' (1987); 'The Agrarian Question and the Development of Capitalism in India' (1985); & has edited several collections eg: 'Chains of Servitude: Bondage and Slavery in India' (with Manjari Dingwaney) and 'The Agrarian Question in Marx and His Successors'.
