HASH(0xa5016780) out of 5 stars Excellent Sept. 1 2012
By David - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Although I am not extremely well versed in Geography, this book is an excellent work about space and creation of uneven development in capitalism. The first two chapters are especially interesting, and deal with the general understanding of space on a philosophical level. The comparison between earlier views, such as relative space, against Newton's absolute space. As far as I understand it relative space saw space as a relation between specific matter or objects. Absolute space is the way we see space now in common parlance, signifying space as a large capsule where things are contained within. After reading this book, I seemed to have come to the conclusion that capitalism has aspects of both philosophies in practice.
Neil Smith also distinguishes between various theories of nature, how society has come to see nature as external to man. He ties this in later with Marx's theories on spatial relations and 'production of nature'. Good companion to David Harvey's Urban Experience or Condition of Postmodernism, who incorporates Marx's theories in application to space.
Slightly difficult, and abstract, but well worth the effort.

HASH(0xa4713450) out of 5 stars great development June 19 2000
By Georgina Calderón Aragón - Published on
Format: Paperback
I think that it is a great book, for all those geographers or of other diciplines interested in the space aspects, the ones that are in this book in a very good fundamental argument about the development of the term space production and the factors that influence in the unequal production in a capitalist system
