Reviews

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
"A brilliant, deeply original political thinker..."--Rebecca Solnit
"A master of opening up thought and stimulating debate."--Slate
"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
"Clever and charismatic."
--The New Yorker
"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)

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