The Democracy Project: A History, a Crisis, a Movement



An exploration of anti-capitalist dissent, new political ideas and truly alternative ways through the crisis, from a leading member of the Occupy movement

From the earliest meetings for Occupy Wall Street, David Graeber - activist, anarchist, and anthropologist - felt that something was different from previous demonstrations. As events gathered pace, from local actions like illegally teaching a seminar in the Bank of America lobby (in a tweed jacket he'd borrowed to look the part) to his harassment and attempted intimidation by New York police in Zuccotti Park, Graeber saw the other Occupy movements in Cairo, Athens, Barcelona and London and knew that times were truly changing.

This witty, provocative, yet wide-ranging and ideas-driven look at the actions of the 99% is a vital read in today's protest climate, and asks: why did it work this time? What went right? And what can we all do now to make our world democratic once again? A rare example of a fully-gestated theoretical treatise that at the same time serves as an energetic account of contemporary events, Future Possible will change the way you think about anarchism and political organization.
