This compilation of almost 100 maps is put together using data from the 1991 census of India. The Atlas maps a regional Geography of women and men, using indicators as diverse as literacy, education, voting patterns, cultural groupingsz, fertility rates, workforce participation etc. The aim is to provide information based on Census data which can help demonstrate the diversity of women s lives in India, and to provide it in such a way that readers/isers can link one set of facts with another, to look at what kinds of patterns emerge. In foregrounding women, the Atlas poses---implicitly---some key questions: how are knowledge and information constructed and communicated? Why has geography, for example, been so silent on the contribution of women to society? What kinds of layers of knowledge and information do we need to unpeel before we arrive at some information about the silent contributors---women. Supplemented by detailed appendices and tables, the Atlas throuws light on missing or invisible facts and information in a graphic, readable and acessible form which makes them useful to a wide range of readers.

This text examines the role of the State in advancing towards sustainable solutions for improving society. The author expands conventional views concerning the state and proposes looking beyond the traditional moulds, such as the omnipotent state, the overburdened state, or the minimal state. The book proposes new areas for development thinking to encourage innovation for the reform of the state. Topics addressed include: the role of social capital and culture in development; community participation in implementing public policies and programmes; and the characteristics of efficient public social management. The first section of the book is mainly devoted to general considerations about the state, whereas the second part reflects on key areas for rethinking with regard to the state of a specific continent, namely Latin America.
