“Andre Gunder Frank was a pioneer of the emerging field of Global History, and within it of the perspective of the world system and its history. Like all great thinkers, and all great and important intellectual currents with a lasting historical legacy, his work, though enormously extensive and impressive in its own right, was also an aspect of a much larger and longer social and intellectual current, which will carry on his legacy and all those who also follow.”
―Barry K. Gills, University of Helsinki , from the Afterword
Andre Gunder Frank was a path-breaking scholar in several disciplines over an illustrious and contentious 50-year career. Premier among his many important works is the book, ReORIENT: Global Economy in the Asian Age, which sought to correct a Eurocentric worldview of the development of the global political economy. As Gunder Frank continued his research, he realized that many of the myths of European industrialization, hegemony, and capitalism hid the fact that Asia remained a serious power not just into the 18th century, as he argued in 1998, but well into the 19th century as well. Gunder Frank passed away in April 2005 while working on this new book, a sequel to ReORIENT. His colleagues rallied to finish it and it is presented here as Andre Gunder Frank's final major statement. His prescience is remarkable today as we see the continuation of Asian influences and ascendancy.
