Social justice and the city by David Harvey( Book )
78 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 2,433 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( Book )
42 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,905 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 )
35 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 1,730 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

The enigma of capital : and the crises of capitalism by David Harvey( Book )
53 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,239 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"--Descripción del editor
A companion to Marx's Capital by David Harvey( Book )
22 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 902 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.

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

Paris, capital of modernity by David Harvey( Book )
30 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 827 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. Making sure to place social and economic forces at the heart of the story, Paris, Capital of Modernity provides a dramatic and panoramic account of this pivotal era, and will stand alongside Carl Schorske's Fin-de-Siecle Vienna as a definitive history of the emergence of the modern city."--BOOK JACKET
Cosmopolitanism and the geographies of freedom by David Harvey( )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 818 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."--Jacket
Justice, nature, and the geography of difference by David Harvey( Book )
27 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Polish and held by 784 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
