New Socialist

"This is just one point that Graeber doesn’t consider, but then, the book doesn’t aim to provide a general historical account of the Occupy movement as it unfolded internationally, but rather an anarchist and anthropological account of Occupy Wall Street [OWS] with selective comparative references to the movement in other parts of the United States. The point is not just to provide an account of OWS but also to use this account to outline “the possibility of democracy in America” (p.xv)".
