Uneven Development is one of the most important books of specifically geographical social theory to be written .

Uneven Development builds on the work of Marxist geographer David .

Uneven Development builds on the work of Marxist geographer David Harvey (Smith’s doctoral advisor) and engages, as Smith puts it, both the geography of politics and the politics of geography, in an attempt to spatialize Marxist theory (pp. 1, 133).

Uneven Development is one of the most important books of specifically geographical social theory to be written in the .

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'.

THE REPUBLICATION of Neil Smith’s Uneven Development is cause for celebration on two counts. First, the book pioneered a wholly new approach to uneven geographical development at a historical moment when the collision of Marxian theorizing and geographical thinking was in its incipient but most fruitful and illuminating phase. It took someone with Smith’s deep knowledge of and passionate commitment to both Marxian and geographical theory to pull off the merger of two so very different modes of thinking with such insight and panache.

In Uneven Development, a classic in its field, Neil Smith offers the first full theory of uneven geographical development, entwining theories of space and nature with a critique of capitalist development. Featuring pathbreaking analyses of the production of nature and the politics of scale, Smith's work anticipated many of the uneven contours that now mark neoliberal globalization. This third edition features an afterword updating the analysis for the present day.

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.

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
