David Graeber - The Democracy Project — at MLK Central Library

Apr 8 2013 7:00 pm
Apr 8 2013 7:59 pm

In The Democracy Project (Spiegel & Grau, $26), David Graeber, author of the best-selling Debt, takes readers on a journey through the idea of democracy, provocatively reorienting our understanding of pivotal historical moments, and extracts their lessons for today—from the birth of Athenian democracy and the founding of the United States of America to the global revolutions of the twentieth century and the rise of a new generation of activists. Underlying it all is a bracing argument that in the face of increasingly concentrated wealth and power in this country, a reenergized, reconceived democracy—one based on consensus, equality, and broad participation—can yet provide us with the just, free, and fair society we want. 

Graeber will be in conversation with Thomas Frank
