The ten lectures in memory of Daniel Thorner comprising this volume, were delivered in various cities in India over a period of sixteen years, from 1985 to 2001. Instituted after his death in 1974, and sponsored by the Indian Statistical Institute, this continuing lecture series reflects the breadth of Thorner’s own range of interests: from themes in the social sciences to issues in the fields of public policy and human rights. Besides an introductory essay by Utsa Patnaik, the volume also includes a hitherto unpublished paper by Daniel Thorner, written in his student days.
