Spaces of Global Capitalism: A Theory of Uneven Geographical Development
'Fiscal crises have cascaded across much of the developing world with devastating results, from Mexico to Indonesia, Russia and Argentina. The extreme volatility in contemporary political economic fortunes seems to mock our best efforts to understand the forces that drive development in the world economy.
[David Harvey] shows the way forward for just such an understanding, enlarging upon the key themes in his recent work: the development of neoliberalism, the spread of inequalities across the globe, and 'space' as a key theoretical concept.' - extracted from back cover.
This publication contains three essays written by Marxist geographer David Harvey as a result of a series of lectures he gave at the University of Heidelberg. These writings present a theoretical framework of Harvey's, demonstrating his mapping of capitalism across geographical regions in highly spatial terms.
Includes an introduction to Harvey by two scholars from the Department of Geography, University of Heidelberg. Also includes an index.
