4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting work, well worth reading, 20 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Spaces of Hope (Paperback)
David Harvey puts forward an interesting argument, providing a marxist-inspired critical assessment of the social order built upon the values of capitalist production. The traditional utopian approaches are discussed, and a distinction between utopias of space and process is developed. Harvey suggests a concept of "dialectical utopianism" as a means for overcomming the rigidities of the exclusively spatial or temporal utopias.
Harvey's take on economic and social inequality in the age of globalisation is very interesting, and the assessment of utopia from a geographical perspective is quite unusual. The book is highly informational and provides a lot of insights into the issues of environmental activism, urban life, and the culture of escapism. Harvey may lack the expertise when it comes to the analysis of utopian texts, but he certainly has the contagious enthusiasm and desire not to just criticise the system, but try to change it as well.
