Development as Freedom by Amartya Sen advocates a new outlook on development: whereas orthodox development thinking has a one-sided focus on economic development as the goal of the process of development, Sen’s development as freedom framework sees the expansion of human freedom as both the goal and primary means of human development. He notes the “unfreedoms” that deprive millions of citizens around the world of the right to live the life they would choose, and suggests that economic indicators alone are insufficient as a measure of development. Sen is a major figure in the fields of development economics and welfare economics, and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 1998.

This book review and analysis is perfect for: 
• Students of economics and international development
• Students of philosophy and politics
• Anyone who wants to understand the relationship between development and freedom
