Anarchist Anthropologist


Here is an interview with David Graeber, former Yale professor and self claimed anarchist.  In this interview he talks about his personal experience with “>academic repression and his family history.

His father, Kenneth Graeber, participated in the Spanish Revolution in Barcelona and fought in the Spanish Civil War and his mother, then Ruth Rubinstein, was part of the original cast of the 1930s labor stage review Pins&Needles, performed entirely by garment workers. Graeber’s father ultimately found work as a plate stripper and Graeber has sometimes suggested his working class upbringing might have played at least as large a role in the problems he later encountered in academic life as his political activities.

Before the video, Here is a book written by David Graeber entitled, Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology for you to download for free.

I would love to hear what you have to say about this interview and his writing.
