Until the works of Castells, Lefebvre and Harvey, a Marxist theory of urban space and urbanisation was hardly seen. The book deals with the Marxist urban space theory developed by David Harvey between the early 1970s and the mid of 1990s. The distinctive feature of his works is seen in his attempt to insert spatial phenomenon into Marx's own social and economic theory. It is an attempt to construct 'historico-geographical materialism' upon Marx' historical materialism. He tries to achieves this purpose first criticizing liberal approaches to urban space. The book is a positive Marxist evaluation of Harvey's Marxist urban space theory.
