Neil Smith

Uneven Development: Nature, Capital, and the Production of Space
(University of Georgia Press, 2008; 3rd edition)

In his now-classic critique of capitalism , Neil Smith offered the first comprehensive theory of uneven geographical development. This new edition, the third, includes a new afterword by the author that extends the book’s findings by applying them to the present moment. The late Edward Said remarked: “Smith provides a brilliant formulation of how the production of a particular kind of nature and space under historical capitalism is essential to the unequal development of a landscape that integrates poverty with wealth, industrial urbanization and agricultural diminishment.” Neil Smith is a distinguished professor of anthropology and earth and environmental sciences at Hunter College and the Graduate Center.
