David Harvey discusses the subject of his new book «Marx, Capital, and the Madness of Economic Reason» (Oxford University Press).
In «Marx, Capital, and the Madness of Economic Reason,» David Harvey not only provides a concise distillation of his famous course on Capital, but also makes the text relevant to the twenty-first century's continued processes of globalization. Harvey shows the work's continuing analytical power, doing so in the clearest and simplest terms but never compromising its depth and complexity. «Marx, Capital, and the Madness of Economic Reason» provides an accessible window into Harvey's unique approach to Marxism and takes readers on a riveting roller coaster ride through recent global history. It demonstrates how and why Capital remains a living, breathing document with an outsized influence on contemporary social thought.
DAVID HARVEY is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at the City University of New York Graduate School, where he has taught since 2001. His course on Marx's Capital, developed with students over 40 years, has been downloaded by over two million people since appearing online in 2008. He is also the author of «The Enigma of Capital,» «A Brief History of Neoliberalism,» and «The Ways of the World.»
