On what's right and keeping left : or why geography still needs Marxian political economy.

Hudson, R. (2006) 'On what's right and keeping left : or why geography still needs Marxian political economy.', Antipode., 38 (2). pp. 374-395.

Abstract

Recently the value of Marxian approaches to human geography has again been called into question in the pages of Antipode. In this paper I review the reasons as to why geographers re‐discovered Marx and then, from the late 1960s, began to engage with Marxian approaches. I then consider some of the reasons why Marxian approaches in their turn became the subject of critique in geography and some of the alternatives explored in the wake of this. The conclusion is that a pluri‐theoretical human geography is necessary but that Marxian approaches remain of central significance to radical and critically minded geographers.
