An essential introduction to the field of historical geography, which offers a radical new way of understanding global capitalism. Fiscal crises have cascaded across much of the developing world with devastating results, from Mexico to Indonesia, Russia and Argentina. The extreme volatility in contemporary political economic fortunes seems to mock our best efforts to understand the forces that drive development in the world economy. In this groundbreaking book, David Harvey shows how the disciplines of historical geography yield decisive new insights into the workings of global capitalism, and introduces the concept of uneven geographical development as a revelatory perspective on the forces which create economic success or failure.

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.
