Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology


Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everywhere anarchism is on the upswing as a political philosophy—everywhere, that is, except the academy. Anarchists repeatedly appeal to anthropologists for ideas about how society might be reorganized on a more egalitarian, less alienating basis. Anthropologists, terrified of being accused of romanticism, respond with silence . . . . But what if they didn't?

This pamphlet ponders what that response would be, and explores the implications of linking anthropology to anarchism. Here, David Graeber invites readers to imagine this discipline that currently only exists in the realm of possibility: anarchist anthropology.

About the Author

David Graeber is Reader in Social Anthropology at Goldsmiths, University of London. He was previously associate professor of anthropology at Yale University. He has published widely on his research in Madagascar and on anthropological theories of value.
