Advanced Introduction to Marxism and Human Geography
Elgar Advanced Introductions are stimulating and thoughtful introductions to major fields in the social sciences, business and law, expertly written by the world's leading scholars. Designed to be accessible yet rigorous, they offer concise and lucid surveys of the substantive and policy issues associated with discrete subject areas.
The Advanced Introduction to Marxism and Human Geography explores the fundamental aspects of Marx's conceptualization of capital and of capitalist development, including value theory, the class relation, accumulation and the development of the capitalist division of labor. Kevin Cox goes beyond simplistic analysis to further engage with key concepts, and how their relationships with one another can illuminate the human geography of the world.
Key features include:
Comparative insights into human geography and Marx's theory
A detailed discussion of capitalism and Marxism, covering topics such as capitalist geography, the capitalist city and urbanization
A focus on core concepts of the field as well as looking more broadly at Marxist approaches to topics such as geopolitics and difference and uneven development.
This engaging work will be valuable reading for students and scholars of human geography and Marxist geography.
