Overview

Beyond Gandhian Economics: Towards a Creative Deconstruction aims at filling the knowledge gap existing in the ontology of Gandhian economics. The book in fact argues that Gandhi was not truly a neoclassical (traditional) economist. It reinterprets Gandhian economics as being constituted by some of his personal views on different topical questions related to a broader spectrum of issues encompassing moral philosophy, politics, and society. The book establishes the fact that the economic issues discussed by Gandhi are inextricably conflated with political and social questions and go beyond the periphery of pure economics.

Editorial Reviews

The Book Review
[The book] explores and attempts to establish Gandhian political economy (GPE) beyond Gandhian economics through a creative deconstruction and it goes beyond the defined domain of economics in analysing social, political and ethical implica¬tions of the so-called economic actions or policies’.... [It]is valuable on two accounts. First, there is ‘intersectionality of numerous components’. Numerous issues and concepts have been linked to the arrival of ‘Gandhian political economy’. Second, ‘critique’ per se has been concretely grounded.
