David Harvey is an unusual character. He is a devoted Marxist; a critic might say devout. He is also a Professor of Anthropology at the City University of New York, having previously been Professor of Geography at Oxford and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. His books on urban geography have been immensely influential; and his online companion to Marx’s Capital has been downloaded by a quarter of a million students. He writes vigorously, clearly, and very readably.
