> Richard Walker (Ph.D. Johns Hopkins) has written on a diverse 
> range of topics in economic and urban geography, as well as 
> environmental policy and the odd foray into philosophy.  He is co-
> author, with Michael Storper, of "The Capitalist Imperative: 
> Territory, Technology and Industrial Growth" (Blackwell, 1989) and, 
> with Andrew Sayer, of "The New Social Economy: Reworking the 
> Division of Labor" (Blackwell, 1992).  Most recently, his focus has 
> been on the regional peculiarities of California - one of the most 
> important economic, political and cultural hearths of world 
> capitalism, and one of the least studied.  He is currently working 
> on a book on the growth of the San Francisco Bay Area and 
> another on the economic development of California, with a third 
> volume planned on the political shape of San Francisco, 1950-
> 2000.  He is a leading figure in contemporary geography and a 
> widely respected Marxist scholar and is a long-time activist in 
> public affairs and on campus.
