Andre Gunder Frank, 1929-2005

Andre Gunder Frank, an engaged intellectual who made lasting contributions to critical analysis of the political economy of imperialism, died today. His sons, Paul and Miguel, wrote to us who knew him:
He fought cancer with great courage, and was still working until two weeks ago, though in recent weeks he worked fewer and fewer hours every day because of pain and exhaustion. He worked with more strength and determination than we have the words to tell -- until his body gave up.
Many of Frank's works are collected at Read them and learn from them -- he wrote for you.
