Description - Spaces of Capital by David Harvey
This work brings together seminal articles by geographer David Harvey, published over three decades, on the tensions between geographical knowledge and political power and on the capitalist production of space. It reprints classic essays such as "On the history and present condition of geography", "The geography of capitalist accumulation" and "the spatial fix: Hegel, von thunen, and Marx". Two additional chapters represent the author's most recent thinking on cartographic identities and social movements.
