about this book

The Limits to Capital provides one of the best theoretical guides to the history and geography of capitalist development. In this new edition, Harvey updates his classic text with a substantial discussion of the turmoil in world markets today.

In his analyses of ‘fictitious capital’ and ‘uneven geographical development’ Harvey takes the reader step by step through layers of crisis formation, beginning with Marx’s controversial argument concerning the falling rate of profit, moving through crises of credit and finance, and closing with a timely analysis geopolitical and geographical considerations.

“A unique and insightful theory of capital.”–Monthly Review

“[A] magnificent achievement, [one of] the most complete, readable, lucid and least partisan exegesis, critique and extension of Marx’s mature political economy available.”–Environment and Planning

“A magisterial work.”–Fredric Jameson

“Monumental.”–Benjamin Kunkel, London Review of Books
