Benjamin Kunkel has written a lengthy article on David Harvey for the London Review of Books. Nominally a joint review of his recent books The Enigma of Capital and A Companion to Marx's Capital, it engages with Harvey's entire body of work, and especially his seminal The Limits to Capital.
Over recent decades, the landmarks of Marxian economic thinking include Ernest Mandel's Late Capitalism (1972), David Harvey's Limits to Capital (1982), Giovanni Arrighi's Long 20th Century (1994) and Robert Brenner's Economics of Global Turbulence (2006), all expressly concerned with the grinding tectonics and punctual quakes of capitalist crisis. Yet little trace of this literature, by Marx or his successors, has surfaced even among the more open-minded practitioners of what might be called the bourgeois theorisation of the current crisis.
Keith Gessen's "A Year in Reading" for The Millions includes, we were relieved to note, David Harvey's Limits to Capital and Immanuel Wallerstein's Historical Capitalism. If you, like Gessen, would like "to get to the bottom of things by reading Capital," we would also recommend Harvey's A Companion to Marx's Capital—"without a doubt one of the two best companions to Marx's [Capital]" according the the Nation.
