Long before the Occupy movement, modern cities had already become the central sites of revolutionary politics, where the deeper currents of social and political change rise to the surface. Consequently, cities have been the subject of much utopian thinking. But at the same time they are also the centers of capital accumulation and the frontline for struggles over who controls access to urban resources and who dictates the quality and organization of daily life. Is it the financiers and developers, or the people?

Rebel Cities places the city at the heart of both capital and class struggles, looking at locations ranging from Johannesburg to Mumbai, and from New York City to São Paulo. Drawing on the Paris Commune as well as Occupy Wall Street and the London Riots, Harvey asks how cities might be reorganized in more socially just and ecologically sane ways—and how they can become the focus for anti-capitalist resistance.

The Enigma of Capital named a Guardian Book of the Year

Paul Mason of the Guardian writes that The Enigma of Capital and the Crises of Capitalism is “the most complete Marxist attempt to situate the global crisis in the context of the irresolvable tensions of a system based on ‘self-expanding money'”. Read his article Books for Giving: Economics / Responses to the global financial meltdown.

The US paperback edition is published by Oxford University Press and is available now on Amazon.com.

The UK paperback edition is published by Profile Books and is available now via Amazon.co.uk and Waterstones.com.

The Enigma of Capital is the winner of the Isaac and Tamara Deutscher Memorial Prize. Read the review in the London Review of Books.
