My academic work has used, and sought to develop, Marxist spatial political economy. It is politically and morally partisan, for socialism. I have published in the following fields:-

  1. Local and regional political-economic governance in contemporary developed countries
  2. Industrial geography, labour processes and industrial relations
  3. The present era of global capitalism, and the nature of neoliberalism
  4. Poverty, disadvantage, and social exclusion
  5. Marxist geographical theory
  6. Brexit and British politics since 2015
  7. Gay life, capitalism, and gay liberation
  8. Working class consciousness and understandings

The final research theme concerns not subject matter but methodology:-

 9. Totalities, dialectics and comprehensive analyses in my work

My main arguments in each of these fields, and the relevant publications, are described below.  There are, of course, considerable overlaps between these fields.  The fields are given in alphabetical order of their title.
