Out of the Margin
Feminist Perspectives on Economics
Edited by Susan Feiner, Edith Kuiper, Notburga Ott, Jolande Sap, Zafiris Tzannatos
Routledge – 1995 – 320 pages
Out of the Margin is the first volume to consider feminist concerns across the entire domain of economics. The book addresses the philosophical roots of 'rational economic man', power relations and conflicts of interest within the family, the limitations of relying on secondary data and the policy implications of neo-classical models.
With its range and depth of coverage this is not only an excellent introduction to the field but also indespensible for those seeking more in depth knowledge of issues of gender and economics.
