He has engaged in policy dialogue and public debate, advancing the cause of a human development focused policy agenda, and a tolerant and democratic polity. This argumentative Indian has made the case for the poorest of the poor, and for plurality in cultural perspective.

It is not surprising that he has won the highest awards, ranging fromthe Nobel Prize in Economics to the Bharat Ratna, Indias highest civilian honor. This public recognition has gone hand in hand with the affection and admiration that Amartyas friends and students hold for him.This volume of essays, written in honor of his 75th birthday by his students and peers, covers the range of contributions that Sen has made to knowledge. They are written by some of the worlds leading economists, philosophers and social scientists, and address topics such as ethics, welfare economics, poverty, gender, human development, society and politics.

This first volume covers the topics of Ethics, Normative Economics and Welfare- Agency, Aggregation and Social Choice- Poverty,Capabilities and Measurement- and Identity, Collective Action and Public Economics. It is a fitting tribute to Sens own contributions to the discourse on Ethics, Welfare and Measurement.Contributors include: Sabina Alkire, Paul Anand, Sudhir Anand, Kwame Anthony Appiah, A. B. Atkinson, Walter Bossert, Francois Bourguignon, John Broome, Satya R.
