David Harvey's Marxism: Making space for time, making time for space

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review


David Harvey is one of the world's leading Marxist thinkers, advancing a classical version of Marxism that stays close to the spirit and letter of Mar's original later writings. This chapter sets his writings over 4 decades in context, identifies their key innovations, and shows how they have advanced Marxist thinking and thinking in Geography, Harvey's home discipline. While Harvey's work as a Marxist has been consistent over time in a theoretical sense, he has shown how is can speak powerfully to the dynamics of a highly turbulent capitalist system.
