Ways of the World (Hardcover) (David Harvey)
About this item
Along with being one of most famous Marxist intellectuals in the past half century, David Harvey has also been one of the world's most cited social scientists. He announced his presence in the early 1970s with the trenchant and still-relevant Social Justice and the City, and he continues to publish influential works to this day. Along with his many books, he has published dozens of influential essays and articles.In The Ways of the World, Harvey has gathered his most important essays since the early 1970s. The result is a career-spanning collection that evinces not only the development of Harvey over time as an intellectual, but also a dialectical vision that gradually expanded its reach from the slums of Baltimore to global environmental degradation to the American imperium. While the coverage is wide-ranging, all of the pieces tackle the core concerns that have always animated Harvey's work: capitalism past and present, social change, freedom, class, imperialism, the city, nature, social justice, postmodernity, globalization, and--not least--the crises that inhere in capitalism. A career-defining volume,The Ways of the World will stand as the one work that presents the trajectory of Harvey's lifelong project in full.
