Fall 20132 / 43

Albert O. Hirschman, who died on December 10, 2012, was one of the most fascinating and versatile social scientists of the twentieth century. After fleeing Germany as a young opponent to the Nazi regime, he  moved across countries, languages, and disciplinary boundaries. He was a pioneer of development economics and other social sciences, to which he contributed with exemplary works on the analysis of the processes and mechanisms of political, economic, and social change.
