David Harvey is a Distinguished Professor at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. His substantive interests lie in the study of urbanization and uneven geographical development of capitalism at a variety of scales, from local to global. Social Justice and the City, Paris, Capital of Modernity and Rebel Cities: From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution are books written in this tradition. He has also engaged in a project to illuminate and make more accessible an understanding of Marx’s Capital. His video lectures on volumes one and two have been widely used as have his Companions to Marx’s Capital, Volumes 1 and 2. He has also written expository texts focusing on Marx’s theorization of capital, such as The Limits to Capital, The Enigma of Capital and Seventeen Contradictions and The End of Capitalism. The applicability of such theorizations to actual situations is taken up in texts such as Justice, Nature and the Geography of Difference, Spaces of Hope, The New Imperialism and A Brief History of Neoliberalism. The Condition of Postmodernity remains, however, his most popular book.
