Summary: "David Harvey is among the most influential Marxist thinkers of the last half century. This book offers a lucid and authoritative introduction to his work, with a structure designed to reflect the enduring topics and insights that serve to unify Harvey's writings over a long period of time. Harvey's writings have exerted huge influence within the social sciences and the humanities. In addition, his work now commands something of a global readership among Left political activists and those interested in current world affairs. Harvey's central preoccupation is capitalism and the impacts of its growth-obsessed, contradictory dynamics. His name is synonymous with key analytical concepts like 'the spatial fix' and 'accumulation by dispossession'. This critical introduction to his thought is an essential companion for both new and more experienced readers. The critique of capitalism is one of the most important undertakings of our time, and Harvey's work offers powerful tools to help us see why an anti-capitalist future is necessary, and why the taming of capitalism is almost certainly insufficient. An important resource for scholars and graduate students in geography, politics, and many other disciplines across the social sciences and humanities"--PPN: PPN: 1809218578
