    David Harvey is Professor of Geography at Johns Hopkins University and Miliband Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science. From 1987 to 1993, he was the Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography at Oxford University. Professor Harvey’s research has gone through several phases of evolution. During the 1970s, his work focused on urbanization and the crises of impoverishment and racism then facing many U.S. cities. In the 1980s, his research was mainly concerned with defining the relationship between political economic change and the processes of urbanization in advanced capitalist countries. He later broadened his emphasis to encompass questions of cultural change and environmental problems. More recently, questions of environmental justice, alternative modes of urbanization, and uneven geographical development within a globalizing world have been at the center of his research. Professor Harvey is the author of numerous books, including Social Justice and the City (1973), The Limits to Capital (1982), The Urbanization of Capital (1985), The Condition of Postmodernity (1989), Justice, Nature and the Geography of Difference (1996), and most recently, Spaces of Hope (2000). He has also received many awards, including the Outstanding Contributor Award of the Association of American Geographers, the Anders Retzius Gold Medal of the Swedish Society of Anthropology and Geography, the Patron’s Medal of the Royal Geographical Society of London, and the Vautrin Lud International Prize for Geography.
