SEN, Amartya. Identity and Violence. The Illusion of Destiny. New York and London: W.W. Norton, (2006). Octavo, original half white paper boards, original dust jacket. $350.
First edition, signed on the title page by Nobel laureate Amartya Sen.
Nobel laureate “Amartya Sen has made fundamental contributions to at least four fields: social choice theory, welfare economics, economic measurement, and development economics… The pre-eminence that he has achieved in each of these different fields is remarkable for any scholar: that he has achieved pre-eminence in so many is utterly extraordinary. He is held in enormously high respect by theoretical, empirical and policy economists alike—to say nothing of philosophers and political theorists” (Guardian). Sen was awarded the 1998 Nobel Prize for Economics for landmark work that “opened up a new field within the theory of social choice” (Erikson, Nobel Prize Presentation Speech).
