a beautiful synthesis of ideas, Harvey is quickly becoming a hero of mine. his writing is quite dense, but he carefully situates all of his ideas prior to delving in and parses out foundational work and its problems in order to prevent misunderstanding. i haven't read a lot of Harvey, but am excited to see a lot of Marxist criticisms of Marx which creates a tautological playground for some of us.
I'm re-reading the later chapters of Justice, Nature etc for a paper I'm writing now which has to do with urbanism, migration and justice. But need no excuse to read David Harvey at any time - he is so brilliantly erudite, subversive, provocative. And cleverly, to his core, a socialist. Always new.

Read this for a geography class while studying abroad at RHUL in the UK.

Discusses social-environmental justice in urban settings.

Intellectually challenging but easy to read, well-reasoned, somewhat provocative.

i've been working on this one for the past 4 months. a marxist analysis of environmental justice. slow but i'm learning a lot!

... i should give up... i'm never going to finish this book...
Interesting and helpful theoretically, but not something I would just sit down and read for fun.
