They address these questions through theoretical, historical, and empirical approaches, and provide critical analysis and macro- and micro-level data for East Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian subcontinent, the Nordic region, and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The contributors are well-known academics and researchers who utilize the methods of economics, sociology, history, and feminist analysis in their case studies of economic development and women's positions."@en
