The Many Lives of Kalyan Sanyal

Kalyan Sanyal was trained as a trade theorist in the mid-1970s and initially made many signifi cant contributions in the fi eld. But he later abandoned neoclassical economics to turn to a study of the Marxian approach to development. An appreciation by a former younger colleague who has an intellectual debt to Sanyal's work in trade theory.

Capitalism, Exclusion, Transition: The Politics of the Present

Kalyan Sanyal's magnum opus, Rethinking Capitalist Development, can be seen as a contribution to the project of reimagining political economy in a way that would place "unsolved political problems" at its centre. It could also be described as a response to the opaqueness of economic processes today and their apparent resistance to existing categories and frameworks. Despite the irony in the fact that it is unlikely to be read by many economists, this treatise is what every author would want her book to be - generous, fertile and good to think with.
