DAVID HARVEY is Distinguished Professor at the City University of New York (CUNY) and Director of The Center for Place, Culture and Politics. Professor Harvey is a leading theorist in the field of urban studies whom Library Journal called "one of the most influential geographers of the later twentieth century." He was formerly professor of geography at Johns Hopkins, a Miliband Fellow at the London School of Economics, and Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography at Oxford. His reflections on the importance of space and place (and more recently "nature") have attracted considerable attention across the humanities and social sciences. His highly influential books include Social Justice and the City (1973); The Limits to Capital (1982); The Condition of Postmodernity (1989); Justice, Nature, and the Geography of Difference (1996); Spaces of Hope (2000); and Spaces of Capital: Towards a Critical Geography (2001); The New Imperialism (2003); and Spaces of Global Capitalism (2006). His most recent book is The Enigma of Capital and the Crises of Capitalism (Oxford University Press, 2010).
