A great deal has been written on what has variously been described as the post-modern condition and on post-modern culture, architecture, art and society. In this new book, David Harvey seeks to determine what is meant by the term in its different contexts and to identify how accurate and useful it is as a description of contemporary experience. But the book is much more than this: in the course of his investigation the author provides a social and semantic history - from the Enlightenment to the present - of modernism and its expression in political and social ideas and movements, as well as in art, literature and architecture. He considers in particular how the meaning and perception of time and space themselves vary over time and space, and shows that this variance affects individual values and social processes of the most fundamental kind. This book will be widely welcomed, not only for its clear and critical account of the arguments surrounding the propositions of modernity and post-modernity, but as an incisive contribution to the history of ideas and their relation to social and political change.

David Harvey received a Bachelor's degree and Ph.D. in geography from Cambridge University. After graduating in 1961, he joined the geography department at Bristol University as a lecturer. In the following years, he held teaching positions at Johns Hopkins and Oxford universities. He has written numerous books including Justice Nature and the Geography of Differences, The Urban Experience, The Condition of Postmodernity, and An Enquiry into the Origins of Cultural Change. He has received many honors, among them the Outstanding Contributor Award of the Association of American Geographers, the Anders Retzuis Gold Medal of the Swedish Society of Anthropology and Geography, and the Vautrin Lud International Geography Prize.
