Social justice and the city by David Harvey( )

124 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 3,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his distinguished and influential career, David Harvey has defined and redefined the relationship among politics, capitalism, and the social aspects of geographical theory. Laying out Harvey's position that geography could not remain objective in the face of urban poverty and associated ills, Social Justice and the City is perhaps the most widely cited work in the field. Harvey analyzes core issues in city planning and policy--employment and housing location, zoning, transport costs, concentrations of poverty--asking in each case about the relationship between social justice and space. How, for example, do built-in assumptions about planning reinforce existing distributions of income? Rather than leading him to liberal, technocratic solutions, Harvey's line of inquiry pushes him in the direction of a "revolutionary geography," one that transcends the structural limitations of existing approaches to space. Harvey's emphasis on rigorous thought and theoretical innovation gives the volume an enduring appeal. This is a book that raises big questions, and for that reason geographers and other social scientists regularly return to it
The new imperialism by David Harvey( )

46 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"People around the world are confused and concerned. Is it a sign of strength or of weakness that the US has suddenly shifted from a politics of consensus to one of coercion on the world stage? Closely argued but clearly written, David Harvey, a leading social theorist of his generation, builds a conceptual framework to expose the underlying forces at work behind these momentous shifts in US policies and politics. The compulsions behind the projection of US power on the world as a 'new imperialism' are here, for the first time, laid bare for all to see."--Jacket
A brief history of neoliberalism by David Harvey( Book )

60 editions published between 2005 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 2,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Harvey, author of The Condition of Postmodernity and The New Imperialism, here tells the political-economic story of where neoliberalization came from and how it proliferated on the world stage. While Thatcher and Reagan are often cited as primary authors of this neoliberal turn, Harvey shows how a complex of forces, from Chile to China and from New York City to Mexico City, have also played their part. In addition he explores the continuities and contrasts between neoliberalism of the Clinton sort and the recent turn towards neoconservative imperialism of George W. Bush. Finally, through critical engagement with this history, Harvey constructs a framework not only for analyzing the political and economic dangers that now surround us, but also for assessing the prospects for the more socially just alternatives being advocated by many oppositional movements."--Jacket

101 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris, capital of modernity by David Harvey( )

32 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paris has long been one of the most influential cities in the world, but it was during the days of the "Second Empire" that the city became the template for modernity as we have come to know it. In the period between the failed revolutions of 1848 and 1871, Paris underwent a stunning transformation. Baron Hausmann, the city's legendary prefect, orchestrated the physical makeover of Paris, replacing the city's medieval plan with the grand boulevards that dominate the city to this day. Just as important, the era saw both the rise of a new form of capitalism dominated by high finance and the emergence of modern consumer culture. The sweeping social and physical changes elicited the novel cultural response of "modernism," but also further divided the city along class lines. The result was the rise and bloody suppression of the Paris Commune in 1871, which is recounted here in vivid detail
The limits to capital by David Harvey( Book )

71 editions published between 1982 and 2018 in English and Turkish and held by 1,475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Limits to Capital provides one of the best theoretical guides to the history and geography of capitalist development. In this new edition, Harvey updates his classic text with a substantial discussion of the turmoil in world markets today. In his analyses of 'fictitious capital' and 'uneven geographical development' Harvey takes the reader step by step through layers of crisis formation, beginning with Marx's controversial argument concerning the falling rate of profit, moving through crises of credit and finance, and closing with a timely analysis geopolitical and geographical considerations
Seventeen contradictions and the end of capitalism by David Harvey( )

37 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Harvey examines the internal contradictions within the flow of capital that have precipitated recent crises. While the contradictions have made capitalism flexible and resilient, they also contain the seeds of systemic catastrophe"--
The enigma of capital : and the crises of capitalism by David Harvey( Book )

57 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the moment the deeply unsettling financial disaster erupted in September 2008, a crisis of confidence has gripped the economic mind. Experts of all stripes, from Alan Greenspan on down, were at a loss to explain what had happened. David Harvey saw this moment coming. A legendary scholar and critic of capitalism, he has been warning of problems for decades. Now, in The Enigma of Capital, Harvey provides a sweeping and brilliantly clear explanation of how the disaster happened, and how we can avoid another like it. Unlike other commentators, Harvey does not focus on subprime loans or mortgage securitization as the root cause of the calamity. Instead, he looks at something that reaches far deeper into the heart of capitalism--the flow of money through society. He shows how falling profit margins in the 1970s generated a deep transformation. With government assistance, capital was freed to flow across borders, and production moved to cheaper labor markets, depressing workers' incomes in the West. But as more and more money moved out of the laboring classes and into the pockets of the wealthy, a problem arose--how could the workers afford to buy the products which fueled the now-global economy? To solve this problem, a new kind of finance capitalism arose, pouring rivers of credit to increasingly strapped consumers. Moreover, these financial institutions loaned money to both real-estate developers as well as home buyers--in effect, controlling both the supply and demand for housing. But when the real-estate market collapsed, so did this financial edifice, an edifice that dominated our economy. We cannot afford to simply shore up this financial system, Harvey writes; we need to undertake a radical overhaul. With this landmark account, he offers a richly informed discussion of how we can turn our economy in a new direction--fairer, healthier, more just, and truly sustainable."--Publisher's description
A companion to Marx's Capital by David Harvey( Book )

30 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression has generated a surge of interest in Marx's work in the effort to understand the origins of our current predicament. For nearly forty years, David Harvey has written and lectured on Capital, becoming one of the world's foremost Marx scholars. Based on his recent lectures, this current volume aims to bring that depth of learning to a broader audience, guiding first-time readers through a fascinating and deeply rewarding text. A Companion to Marx's Capital offers fresh, original and sometimes critical interpretations of a book that changed the course of history and, as Harvey intimates, may do so again
Cosmopolitanism and the geographies of freedom by David Harvey( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Liberty and freedom are frequently invoked to justify political action. Presidents as diverse as Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush have built their policies on some version of these noble values. Yet in practice, idealist agendas often turn sour as they confront specific circumstances on the ground. Demonstrated by incidents at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay, the pursuit of liberty and freedom can lead to violence and repression, undermining our trust in universal theories of liberalism, neoliberalism, and cosmopolitanism. Combining his passions for politics and geography, David Harvey charts a cosmopolitan order more appropriate to an emancipatory form of global governance. Political agendas tend to fail, he argues, because they ignore the complexities of geography. Incorporating geographical knowledge into the formation of social and political policy is therefore a necessary condition for genuine democracy. Harvey begins with an insightful critique of the political uses of freedom and liberty, especially during the George W. Bush administration. Then, through an ontological investigation into geography's foundational concepts--space, place, and environment--he radically reframes geographical knowledge as a basis for social theory and political action. As Harvey makes clear, the cosmopolitanism that emerges is rooted in human experience rather than illusory ideals and brings us closer to achieving the liberation we seek." -- Publisher's description

Justice, nature, and the geography of difference by David Harvey( Book )

36 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book engages with the politics of social and environmental justice, and seek new ways to think about the future of urbanization in the twenty-first century. It establishes foundational concepts for understanding how space, time, place and nature - the material frames of daily life - are constituted and represented through social practices, not as separate elements but in relation to each other. It describes how geographical differences are produced, and shows how they then become fundamental to the exploration of political, economic and ecological alternatives to contemporary life. Justice, Nature and the Geography of Difference speaks to a wide readership of students of social, cultural and spatial theory and of the dynamics of contemporary life. It is a convincing demonstration that it is both possible and necessary to value difference and to seek a just social order
Spaces of hope by David Harvey( Book )

34 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utopian movements have for centuries tried to construct a just society. Harvey looks at their history to ask why they failed and what the ideas behind them might still have to offer. His devastating description of the existing urban environment (Baltimore is his case study) fuels his argument that we can and must use the force of utopian imagining against all who say "there is no alternative." He outlines a new kind of utopian thought, which he calls dialectical utopianism, and refocuses our attention on possible designs for a more equitable world of work and living with nature. If any political ideology or plan is to work, he argues, it must take account of our human qualities. Finally, Harvey dares to sketch a very personal utopian vision in an appendix, one that leaves no doubt about his own geography of hope."--pub. desc

The urbanization of capital : studies in the history and theory of capitalist urbanization by David Harvey( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 1998 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Urbanization of Capital (Harvey, 1985b), a collection of six papers published during the previous decade together with two new chapters, does exactly what it says on the cover: It explores the question of how capital -- which Harvey, following Marx, theorizes as a process rather than a thing -- becomes urbanized. ... Harveyʹs explicit aim ... is to ground our understanding of capitalist urbanism within the Marxian theory of accumulation, so it is with this concept that we must begin. After Marx, Harvey claims that there is in the capitalist production process an inherent tendency toward overaccumulation, whereby "too much capital is produced in aggregate relative to the opportunities to employ that capital."--Http:// (March 14, 2016)

Spaces of global capitalism by David Harvey( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Geographer and social theorist David Harvey offers a comprehensive critique of contemporary capitalism. In this book, he shows the way forward for just such an understanding, enlarging upon the key themes in his recent work: the development of neo-liberalism, the spread of inequalities across the globe, and 'space' as a key theoretical concept. Both a declaration of a new research programme and a concise introduction to David Harvey's central concerns, this book will be essential reading for scholars and students across the humanities and social sciences."--Jacket
