• La géographie doit s'affranchir de son statut de discipline subalterne, fragmentée en expertises techniques (cartographie, aménagement du territoire, architecture...) directement au service des puissances politiques, étatiques et économiques.
    David Harvey développe ici une théorie de la production de l'espace au sein de laquelle la question spatiale est inséparable des enjeux et des luttes politiques, ainsi que de la reproduction des rapports de production capitalistes. On apprendra dans cet ouvrage comment les crises capitalistes s'incarnent physiquement dans les espaces qu'elles produisent.
    Sa pensée s'inscrit dans la continuité des problématiques inaugurées par Henri Lefebvre, dont elle constitue tout à la fois l'actualisation et la systématisation au travers de la formulation d'une théorie du développement géographique inégal à l'ère de la mondialisation néolibérale.
    /> On trouvera ici un cadre théorique à même de penser quelques-unes des questions posées par la mondialisation?: la dialectique du global et du local, l'intégration de la Chine aux mécanismes de la concurrence mondiale, l'écologie et les questions de justice environnementale, l'actualisation de l'analyse marxiste de la lutte de classe à échelle planétaire ou de l'impérialisme?
    Ce livre est aussi une histoire de la géographie comme discipline, un diagnostic historique des contradictions constitutives de celle-ci?: tout à la fois instrument du pouvoir et productrice d'une connaissance du réel, dont une géographie populaire doit se réapproprier à des fins d'émancipation sociale.

  • For three centuries the capitalist system has shaped western society, informed its rulers, and conditioned the lives of its people. Has the time come to move beyond it?



    Using his unrivalled knowledge of the subject, Harvey lays bare the follies of the international financial system, looking at the nature of capitalism, how it works and why sometimes it doesn't. He examines the vast flows of money that surge round the world in daily volumes well in excess of the sum of all its economies. He looks at the cycles of boom and bust in the world's housing and stock markets and shows that periodic episodes of meltdown are not only inevitable in the capitalist system but essential to its survival. The Enigma of Capital is a timely call-to-arms for the end of the capitalism, and makes a compelling case for a new social order that would allow us to live within a system that could be responsible, just and humane

  • You thought capitalism was permanent? Think again.



    David Harvey unravels the contradictions at the heart of capitalism - its drive, for example, to accumulate capital beyond the means of investing it, its imperative to use the cheapest methods of production that leads to consumers with no means of consumption, and its compulsion to exploit nature to the point of extinction. These are the tensions which underpin the persistence of mass unemployment, the downward spirals of Europe and Japan, and the unstable lurches forward of China and India.



    Not that the contradictions of capital are all bad: they can lead to the innovations that make capitalism resilient and, it seems, permanent. Yet appearances can deceive: while many of capital's contradictions can be managed, others will be fatal to our society. This new book is both an incisive guide to the world around us and a manifesto for change.

  • Anglais The New Imperialism

    David Harvey

    People around the world are confused and concerned. Is it a sign of strength or of weakness that the US has suddenly shifted from a politics of consensus to one of coercion on the world stage? What was really at stake in the war on Iraq? Was it all about oil and, if not, what else was involved? What role has a sagging economy played in pushing the US into foreign adventurism and what difference does it make that neo-conservatives rather than neo-liberals are now in power? What exactly is the relationship between US militarism abroad and domestic politics?

    These are the questions taken up in this compelling and original book. Closely argued but clearly written, 'The New Imperialism' builds a conceptual framework to expose the underlying forces at work behind these momentous shifts in US policies and politics. The compulsions behind the projection of US power on the world as a 'new imperialism' are here, for the first time, laid bare for all to see.

    This new paperback edition contains an Afterword written to coincide with the result of the 2004 American presidental election.

  • This book presents a sequence of landmark works in David Harvey's intellectual journey over five decades. It shows how experiencing the riots, despair and injustice of 1970s Baltimore led him to seek an explanation of capitalist inequalities via Marx and to a sustained intellectual engagement that has made him the world's leading exponent of Marx's work. The book takes the reader through the development of his unique synthesis of Marxist method and geographical understanding that has allowed him to develop a series of powerful insights into the ways of the world, from the new mechanics of imperialism, crises in financial markets and the effectiveness of car strikers in Oxford, to the links between nature and change, why Sacre Coeur was built in Paris, and the meaning of the postmodern condition. David Harvey is renowned for originality, acumen and the transformative value of his insights. This book shows why.

  • Brand Enigma

    • 3 Décembre 2010

    Brand Enigma provides a refreshing antidote to tired, conventional approaches to business development, marketing and innovation. The premise for this book is that the brand embodies the spirit of the business and, properly understood, can enable the enterprise to raise innovation, business development and performance to new levels.
    Based on a proven method for deconstructing and rebuilding brands, the book outlines an alternative but stimulating, and highly effective method of putting the brand at the centre of the business.
    At the heart of this approach is the Brand Dream Model. Developed and perfected over several years, the model has helped to generate breakthroughs for many of the world's leading brands and corporations. It has also been applied to educational establishments and as part of a strategy development programme for a government department.
    Using deceptively simple methods based on experiential, as opposed to analytical, techniques, the Brand Dream Process reveals the past strengths of the brand, its current characteristics and future potential. When the process involves everyone from the board to the marketing department and front line staff, it also generates a shared understanding of the business, its values and goals.
    Brand Enigma gives you the tools to put your brand and business in a class apart from the competition. "... for breaking the norm and looking at a brand from a team perspective, this is one of the best. There's no breakthrough point with more conventional approaches to brand development. This immerses you. It's a still-hidden gem that many other companies should try."
    --Chris Priest, VP Marketing Europe Digital Appliances, LG "What an extraordinary learning experience for our company. The Brand Dream let us express ourselves and get to a meaningful result unlike any other event that I have ever been a part of."
    --Kenny Kahn, Chief Strategic Officer, Iverify "We have never done anything like this before! We found the experience enlightening, our objective was our brand image, which we feel we achieved admirably. However the unexpected benefit was an emotional and adrenalin-filled roller coater of a team-building exercise."
    --Andrew Jankel, Managing Director, Jankel Armouring "It brought people together in a way that other brand development approaches would not ... If you have a brand in the doldrums, it's an outstanding tool to reinvigorate it."
    --Nick Shepherd, former senior marketing executive, Kraft Foods "When you give anyone a mechanism for analysing the world, you empower them. It's partly because the model is so simple that it is blindingly successful."
    --David Bott, Director of Innovation Platforms, the Technology Strategy Board
