Latin America: underdevelopment or revolution; essays on the development of underdevelopment and the immediate enemy by Andre Gunder Frank( Book )

39 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his second book, Andre Gunder Frank expands on the theme presented in his influential study Capitalism and Underdevelopment in Latin America. It is the colonial structure of world capitalism, in his view, which produced and maintains the underdevelopment characteristic of Latin America and the rest of the Third World. This colonial structure penetrates everywhere in Latin America, forming and transforming all its features in obedience to its own imperatives and thereby imposing upon the region those characteristic features of poverty and backwardness which are not primarily the remnants of an ancient "feudal" past but the direct products of capitalism. This development of underdevelopment will persist, Frank argues, until the people of Latin America free themselves from world capitalism by means of revolution."--Back cover
ReOrient : global economy in the Asian Age by Andre Gunder Frank( Book )

28 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andre Gunder Frank asks us to ReOrient our views away from Eurocentrism-to see the rise of the West as a mere blip in what was, and is again becoming, an Asia-centered world. In a bold challenge to received historiography and social theory he turns on its head the world according to Marx, Weber, and other theorists, including Polanyi, Rostow, Braudel, and Wallerstein. Frank explains the Rise of the West in world economic and demographic terms that relate it in a single historical sweep to the decline of the East around 1800. European states, he says, used the silver extracted from the American colonies to buy entry into an expanding Asian market that already flourished in the global economy. Resorting to import substitution and export promotion in the world market, they became Newly Industrializing Economies and tipped the global economic balance to the West. That is precisely what East Asia is doing today, Frank points out, to recover its traditional dominance. As a result, the "center" of the world economy is once again moving to the "Middle Kingdom" of China. Anyone interested in Asia, in world systems and world economic and social history, in international relations, and in comparative area studies, will have to take into account Frank's exciting reassessment of our global economic past and future
Lumpenbourgeoisie: lumpendevelopment; dependence, class, and politics in Latin America by Andre Gunder Frank( Book )

45 editions published between 1971 and 1981 in 4 languages and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World accumulation, 1492-1789 by Andre Gunder Frank( Book )

48 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Gunder Frank has achieved the status of being a persona of controversy." This means that his writings are widely discussed, passionately debated and hastily read. He first attained this notoriety in a polemical essay originally published in 1967 in an early "New Left" scholarly journal called Catalyst. It was a slashing, some thought devastating, attack on the then prevailing (and up-to-then scarcely contested) 'conventional wisdom' on economic development... "Frank remains one of the most productive, stimulating and incisive analysts of the global process of accumulation and hence of 'development' and 'underdevelopment.' And his recent books show that he is a reflective scholar who continues to struggle with his material. He warrants careful, not sloppy, reading."

The World system : five hundred years or five thousand?( Book )

34 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The historic long term economic interconnections of the world are now universally accepted. The idea of the economic 'world system' advanced by Immanuel Wallerstein has set the period of linkage in the early modern period but Andre Gunder Frank and Barry K. Gills think that this date is much too late. They argue an interconnection going back as much as 5000 years. In The World System, leading academics examine this issue, in a debate contributed to by William H. McNeill and Immanuel Wallerstein among others

The centrality of Central Asia by Andre Gunder Frank( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eurasian history writing has invariably focused on the civilizations of China, India, Persia, Arabia and Europe. Geographically these regions encircle the wide area of Central Asia, which appears as a sort of black hole in the middle of the world, the home of migrants, monks and mullahs and above all of barbarians. However, the outlying civilizations were formed and even defined through interaction with Central Asia. Therefore, the intent of this study is to demand due recognition of the centrally important role of Central Asians in the history of their neighbours and thus their place in world system history as a whole
ReOrienting the 19th century : global economy in the continuing Asian age by Andre Gunder Frank( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."-- Publisher's description
Theory and methodology of world development : the writings of Andre Gunder Frank by Andre Gunder Frank( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together key, incisive writings (published and unpublished) of the late Andre Gunder Frank on world development and world history in a singular volume. The selections provide the reader with a historical tracing of Gunder Frank's conceptual thinking on development from the national liberation struggles of the 1950s -1960s through to his views on world history, world development and globalization in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The latter period witnessed his rethinking of world development and the rejection of theoretical positions he had taken in the 1960s and 1970s. Pertinent writings during the last phase of his intellectual career addressing the impact of Eurocentrism on the understanding of world development and world history, the mythology of European exceptionalism, and the rise of Asia are included."--Publisher's website
