Andre Gunder Frank was a path-breaking scholar in several disciplines over an illustrious and contentious 50-year career. First amongst his many important works is the book ReORIENT: Global Economy in the Asian Age, which sought to correct a Euro-centric world view of the development of the global political economy. Frank passed away in April 2005 while working on this new book, a sequel to ReORIENT. In this book Frank shows many of the myths of European industrialisation, hegemony and capitalism which have hidden the fact that Asia remained a serious power not just into the 18th century, as Frank himself argued in 1998, but well into the 19th century as well. When Frank passed away his colleagues rallied to finish this book and it is presented here as his final major statement.

Andre Gunder Frank received his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago in economics and held professorships in several disciplines at universities on three continents. He published the first volume of ReORIENT in 1998. His opus includes some forty books and nearly one thousand articles and other pieces in numerous languages written over fifty years and spanning 5,000 years of global political and economic development. He is best known as the author of “dependency theory” and was one of the founders of the World Systems approach.Review:
“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
