In rejecting falsely homogenizing accounts of women-s
lives, feminist economists have, in recent years,
unlocked the multiple ways in which gendered relations of
dominance and subordination are maintained. One of the
key differences they have turned their attention to is
ethnicity. This study of Muslim, Sinhala and Tamil
Households, in Sri Lanka examines both the commonality of
patriarchal structures and economic problems in such
households, as well as the differences created by the
ethnicities that divide them. The author looks at the
nature and reliability of kinship support for female
heads and the reciprocal obligations in terms of female
propriety and conventional conduct extracted from female
heads. She questions development policies premise on the
patriarchal household and argues for a recognition of
diversity and complexity.

The Ambani brothers had fought over many issues, but what
sometimes got lost in the din of the battle cries was a
simple fact: much of the tussle was over India-s natural
resources, about how the resources were intended to be
mined, marketed and monetised.The author shows how the
simmering controversy over the rich natural gas reserves
in the Krishna-Godavari Basin boiled over into a
primetime storm on gas pricing involving the office of
the Comptroller and Auditor General of India, the
Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas as well as the
Prime Minister-s Office, even as he introduces new
dimensions to it. This book argues that the battle
between the Ambani brothers was largely about wresting
control over reserves of natural gas that are below the
ocean bed along the basin of the two greatest rivers of
