Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology, Paperback / softback Book

Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


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.
