Product details

Product description


"Clever and charismatic."--The New Yorker

"One of our most important and provocative thinkers..."--Cory Doctorow

"Graeber is an American anthropologist with a winning combination of talents: he's a startlingly original thinker...able to convey complicated ideas with wit and clarity."--The Telegraph (UK)

"A brilliant, deeply original political thinker..."--Rebecca Solnit

"A master of opening up thought and stimulating debate."--Slate

"Graeber wants us to unshackle ourselves from the limits imposed by bureaucracy, precisely so we can actually get down to openly and creatively arguing about our collective future."--NPR

"A thought-provoking examination of our working lives."--Financial Times

"Buoyed by a sense of recognition, the reader happily follows Graeber in his fun attempts to categorize bulls--- jobs into Goons, Flunkies, Box Tickers, Duct Tapers, and Taskmasters, which inevitably bleed together into Complex Multiform Bulls--- Jobs. It's funny, albeit painful, that we've gotten work so wrong and spend so much time at it."--Bloomberg.com

Praise for DEBT: The First 5000 Years

"Fresh...fascinating... Graeber's book is not just thought provoking, but also exceedingly timely."--Gillian Tett, The Financial Times

"The book is more readable and entertaining than I can indicate... It is a meditation on debt, tribute, gifts, religion and the false history of money. Graeber is a scholarly researcher, an activist and a public intellectual."--Peter Carey, The Observer

Praise for Utopia of Rules:

"Thought-provoking."--Boston Globe

"[A] fizzing, fabulous firecracker of a book... Our contemporary bureaucrats are revealed, in fact, as none other than you and me, forever administering and marketing ourselves."--The Literary Review
