Anarchy–In a Manner of Speaking
Conversations with Mehdi Belhaj Kacem, Nika Dubrovsky, and Assia Turquier–Zauberman
David Graeber was not only one of today’s most important living thinkers, but also one of the most influential. He was also one of the very few engaged intellectuals who has a proven track record of effective militancy on a world scale, and his impact on the international left cannot be overstated.
The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity
A fascinating inquiry, which leads us to rethink the nature of human capacities, as well as the proudest moments of our own history, and our interactions with and indebtedness to the cultures and forgotten intellectuals of indigenous societies. Challenging and illuminating. -- Noam Chomsky

The Democracy Project
This book isn’t just about the Occupy movement itself, but about the possibility of actual democracy in America. And the opening up of the radical imagination Occupy allowed.
The Utopia of Rules
On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy.
Debt: The First 5,000 Years
David’s magnum opus is a book that eludes simple summaries. Debt is an encyclopaedic journey through global history encompassing the stories of grand civilizations as well as small societies whose social logics reveal more about the human condition than anyone might imagine. It is primarily a story about money and the way material issues have always been underlain by moral considerations.
Constituent Imagination: Militant Investigations, Collective Theorization
These essays present a series of inspiring examples of how to conduct research for radical politics both inside and outside the university. --Michael Hardt, Duke University
