A revised and updated edition of the international bestseller. Graeber, one of the early organisers of Occupy Wall Street and a well regarded academic, presents a stunning reversal of conventional wisdom; he shows that before there was money, there was debt. For more than 5000 years, since the beginnings of the first agrarian empires, humans have used elaborate credit systems to buy and sell goods, long before the invention of cash. It is in this era, Graeber argues, that we first see a society divided between debtors and creditors.
David Graeber teaches anthropology at Goldsmiths, University of London. He has written for Harper's, The Nation, Mute, and The New Left Review. In 2006, he delivered the Malinowski Memorial Lecture at the London School of Economics, an annual talk that honors outstanding anthropologists who have fundamentally shaped the study of culture. One of the original organizers of Occupy Wall Street, Graeber has been called an anti-leader of the movement by Bloomberg Businessweek. The Atlantic wrote that he has come to represent the Occupy Wall Street message...expressing the group's theory, and its founding principles, in a way that truly elucidated some of the things people have questioned about it.
