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.

Reorienting The 19th Century

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.

Das Standardwerk zur Wirtschaftsgeschichte Kaum eine Frage ist umstrittener und stärker mit Ideologie befrachtet als die, warum manche Länder wirtschaftlich äußerst erfolgreich sind, während andere unfähig scheinen, aus ihrer Armut herauszufinden. Liegt es am Klima? An der Kultur? An der Politik? In seiner umfassenden Geschichte über die Weltwirtschaft der letzten sechshundert Jahre entwickelt David Landes Antworten auf diese Fragen und bietet zugleich ein Standardwerk zur Geschichte der Weltwirtschaft.

Power In The Global Age

This brilliant new book by one of Europe's leading social thinkers throws light on the global power games being played out between global business, nation states and movements rooted in civil society. Beck offers an illuminating account of the changing nature of power in the global age and assesses the influence of the ever-expanding counter-powers. The author puts forward the provocative thesis that in an age of global crises and risks, a politics of "golden handcuffs" - the creation of a dense network of transnational interdependencies - is exactly what is needed in order to regain national autonomy, not least in relation to a highly mobile world economy. It is imperative that the maxim of nation-based realpolitik - that national interests have necessarily to be pursued by national means - be replaced by the maxim of cosmopolitan realpolitik. The more cosmopolitan our political structures and activities, Beck suggests, the more successful they will be in promoting national interests, and the greater our individual power in this global age will be.

Schl Sselwerke Der Postcolonial Studies

Postkoloniale Studien setzen sich kritisch mit kolonialen Gesellschaftsstrukturen und Repräsentationen von Andersheit bzw. Eigenem auseinander, die sich bis in die Gegenwart fortschreiben. Für das Selbstverständnis der ‚westlichen Gesellschaften‘ so zentrale Unterscheidungen wie Tradition/Moderne, Orient/Okzident, Natur/Kultur, Eigenes/Fremdes etc. stehen dabei zur Disposition. Der Band veranschaulicht die Vielstimmigkeit des postkolonialen Diskurses, indem er einerseits einen orientierenden Überblick über die zentralen Werke und AutorInnen der Postcolonial Studies, wie etwa Edward W. Said, Homi K. Bhabha, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Stuart Hall oder bell hooks, und ihre ideengeschichtlichen Referenzen verschafft. Andererseits wird die Rezeptionsgeschichte postkolonialer Perspektiven in geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen nachgezeichnet: u.a. in Literatur-, Politik-, Medien-, Religionswissenschaft, Ethnologie, Soziologie oder auch Kunstgeschichte. Der Band versteht sich nicht nur als Nachschlagewerk für Studierende und Interessierte; er leistet auch einen eigenen Beitrag zur Theoriebildung.
