In 2011, David Graeber’s monumental book Debt: The First 5,000 Years was published. In that very same year, he burst into national consciousness with the Occupy Wall Street movement he helped to spark.
This year, he has written a daring book T” Part reflection on Occupy Wall Street, the first major stirring of democratic spirit in the living memory of many, and part journey through the questions and tensions surrounding an admittedly difficult concept.
He is an original thinker, an anthropologist, as well as a street action person. He dedicated this new book to his father, Kenneth Graeber, a Lincoln vet of the Spanish Civil War.
You can read an interview where he discusses some of the major themes of this new book.
