Reviews

"As always with Harvey's work, this is a book rich in ideas and dense in argument... It should be widely read and argued over by all of us in the urban and environmental field." ?P. Healey, Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design "This surely is a most important book and one to turn to again and again as David Harvey's work never fails to be challenging." ?Linda McDowell, University of Cambridge "... Harvey's writing remains enviably readable and maintains a compelling sense of urgency and purpose." ?Steve Hinchliffe, Open University "... this book deserves a very wide readership, even among those who are more practically or even policy oriented. It is a rich and creative text, which confronts some of the biggest social and political questions we face today." ?Allan Cochrane, The Open University "As a contribution to the development of geographical scholarship in the historical materialist tradition, this is a landmark volume..." ?David M. Smith, Queen Mary and Westfield College "Clearly, this book is a tour de force ... Its breadth of reference makes almost every page interesting and provocative." ?Alan M. Hay, The Geographical Journal
