Abstract

Originally published in 1982, David Harvey's The Limits to Capital marked a major event in the development of Marxist geographical theory. Limits represented a foundational attempt to explore the geographical dimensions of Marx's theory of capital accumulation. At the same time, it also represented a path-breaking foray into key areas of geographical political economy, including finance capital, the production of built environment and spatial configurations, the geographies of class struggle and uneven development, crisis theory, state theory and imperialism. Limits culminated Harvey's earlier efforts to elaborate the theoretical foundations for an historicalgeographical materialism, while also providing a solid conceptual foundation for his own (and many others') subsequent work on more concrete aspects of capitalist urbanisation, regional development and the political-economic geographies of capitalist restructuring.
