Now in paperback, the updated and expanded edition : David Graeber’s “fresh . . . fascinating . . . thought-provoking . . . and exceedingly timely” (Financial Times) history of debt
 
Here anthropologist David Graeber presents a stunning reversal of conventional wisdom: he shows that before there was money, there was debt. For more than 5,000 years, since the beginnings of the first agrarian empires, humans have used elaborate credit systems to buy and sell goods—that is, long before the invention of coins or cash. It is in this era, Graeber argues, that we also first encounter a society divided into debtors and creditors.

Graeber shows that arguments about debt and debt forgiveness have been at the center of political debates from Italy to China, as well as sparking innumerable insurrections. He also brilliantly demonstrates that the language of the ancient works of law and religion (words like “guilt,” “sin,” and “redemption”) derive in large part from ancient debates about debt, and shape even our most basic ideas of right and wrong. We are still fighting these battles today without knowing it.

Recensione:

'A brilliant, deeply original political thinker' - Rebecca Solnit

' I loved this book' - Thomas Piketty, author of 'Capital in the Twenty-First Century'

'One of the year's most influential books' - Paul Mason, The Guardian

'Fascinating... Graeber's book is not just thought provoking, but also exceedingly timely' - Gillian Tett, Financial Times

'When you read this you'll be cleverer' - Russell Brand

'Brilliant, unexpectedly funny, and provides many bracing perspectives on the subject' - A 2012 Book of the Year in The Spectator

'The most important theory book I've read this year, an essential take on the current crisis by an anarchist anthropologist who combines credentials with readability' - Laurie Penny's Book of 2012 in the New Statesman

'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

'Remarkable' - --Giles Fraser

"David came round my house in east London to talk to me about revolution. I knew immediately that I'd like him, he just had one of those faces." - Russell Brand talks about his admiration for David Graeber in The Guardian

L'autore:

David Graeber teaches anthropology at the London School of Economics. 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.”

Descrizione libro Paperback. Condizione: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. The groundbreaking international best-seller that turns everything you think about money, debt, and society on its head--from the "brilliant, deeply original political thinker" David Graeber (Rebecca Solnit, author of Men Explain Things to Me) Before there was money, there was debt. For more than 5,000 years, since the beginnings of the first agrarian empires, humans have used elaborate credit systems to buy and sell goods--that is, long before the invention of coins or cash. It is in this era that we also first encounter a society divided into debtors and creditors--which lives on in full force to this day. So says anthropologist David Graeber in a stunning reversal of conventional wisdom. He shows that arguments about debt and debt forgiveness have been at the center of political debates from Renaissance Italy to Imperial China, as well as sparking innumerable insurrections. He also brilliantly demonstrates that the language of the ancient works of law and religion (words like "guilt," "sin," and "redemption") derive in large part from ancient debates about debt, and shape even our most basic ideas of right and wrong. We are still fighting these battles today. Codice articolo AAT9781612194196

Descrizione libro Paperback. Condizione: new. Paperback. 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. Anthropologist David Graeber shows readers that for more than 5000 years, since the beginning of agrarian empires, humans have used elaborate credit systems to buy and sell goods. He also shows that the history of society being divided into creditors and debtors was born in this ancient era.
