Feminist economists have demonstrated that interrogating hierarchies based on gender, ethnicity, class and nation results in an economics that is biased and more faithful to empirical evidence than are mainstream accounts.

This rigorous and comprehensive book examines many of the central philosophical questions and themes in feminist economics including
· History of economics
· Feminist science studies
· Identity and agency
· Caring labor
· Postcolonialism and postmodernism

With contributions from such leading figures as Nancy Folbre, Julie Nelson and Sandra Harding, Toward a Feminist Theory of Economics looks set to become the book on feminist economics for some time to come and will be greatly appreciated by all those interested in gender studies, economic methodology and social theory.
