About the Author

Mukesh Eswaran is a professor in the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia.


Winner of the 2015 PROSE Award in Textbook/Social Sciences, Association of American Publishers One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 2015 "Providing an accessible textbook-style survey of this emerging field, Mukesh Eswaran's Why Gender Matters in Economics plugs a gaping hole in the discipline. Drawing on insights not only from feminism but also from evolutionary biology, anthropology, psychology, politics and Marxism, Eswaran seeks to answer questions of interest to us all."--Victoria Bateman, Times Higher Education "[Why Gender Matters in Economics] provides a practical understanding of how economic reasoning informs discussions around such topics as the balance of power in households, labor markets, wealth, credit markets, fertility and health care, marriage, suffrage, and empowerment... This book is a comprehensive and discerning work that should provide readers with the context and understanding to more effectively comprehend the substantive economic role of gender."--Choice "A rich trove of information about what are commonly though of as 'women's issues' in economics."--Julie A. Nelson, Journal of Economic Literature
