Direct Action: An Ethnography – David Graeber – Google Books

Starting from the assumption that, when dealing with possibilities of global transformation and emerging political forms, a disinterested, “objective” perspective is impossible, he writes as both scholar and activist. At the same time, his experiment in the application of ethnographic methods to important ongoing political events is a serious and unique contribution to the field of anthropology, as well ddirect an inquiry into anthropology’s political implications.

Written in a clear, ah style with a minimum of academic jargonthis study brings readers behind the scenes of a movement that has changed the terms of debate about world power relations.

From informal conversations in coffee shops to large “spokescouncil” planning meetings and teargas-drenched street actions, Graeber paints a vivid and fascinating picture.

Along the way, he addresses matters of deep interest to anthropologists: David Graeber is an anthropologist and activist who teaches at the University of London.

Active in numerous direct-action political organizations, he is the author of Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology ; Towards an Anthropological Theory of Etjnography ; and Possibilities: Essays on Hierarchy, Rebellion, and Desire.
