David Harvey: "The Dialectics of Social Change"

DAVID HARVEY is Distinguished Professor at the City University of New
York (CUNY) and Director of The Center for Place, Culture and Politics.
Professor Harvey is a leading theorist in the field of urban studies
whom Library Journal called "one of the most influential geographers of
the later twentieth century." He was formerly professor of geography at
Johns Hopkins, a Miliband Fellow at the London School of Economics, and
Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography at Oxford. His reflections on
the importance of space and place (and more recently "nature") have
attracted considerable attention across the humanities and social
sciences. His highly influential books include Social Justice and the
City (1973); The Limits to Capital (1982); The Condition of
Postmodernity (1989); Justice, Nature, and the Geography of Difference
(1996); Spaces of Hope (2000); and Spaces of Capital: Towards a
Critical Geography (2001); The New Imperialism (2003); and Spaces of
Global Capitalism (2006). His most recent book is The Enigma of Capital
and the Crises of Capitalism (Oxford University Press, 2010).
