    Inhaltsangabe

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    For generations, our remote ancestors have been cast as primitive and childlike - either free and equal, or thuggish and warlike. Civilisation, we are told, could be achieved only by sacrificing those original freedoms or, alternatively, by taming our baser instincts. David Graeber and David Wengrow show how such theories first emerged in the 18th century as a reaction to Indigenous critiques of European society and why they are wrong. In doing so, they overturn our view of human history, including the origins of farming, property, cities, democracy, slavery and civilisation itself.

    Drawing on path-breaking research in archaeology and anthropology, the authors show how history becomes a far more interesting place once we begin to see what's really there. If humans did not spend 95 per cent of their evolutionary past in tiny bands of hunter-gatherers, what were they doing all that time? If agriculture, and cities, did not mean a plunge into hierarchy and domination, then what kinds of social and economic organisation did they lead to? The answers are often unexpected and suggest that the course of history may be less set in stone and more full of playful possibilities than we tend to assume.

    The Dawn of Everything fundamentally transforms our understanding of the human past and offers a path towards imagining new forms of freedom, new ways of organising society. This is a monumental book of formidable intellectual range, animated by curiosity, moral vision and faith in the power of direct action.

    Utterly transformative

    This book is perhaps the single most mind blowing thing I've engaged with in a long while. The systematic dismantling of long held misconceptions about the development of civilization and prehistoric living is something I now consider to have been long overdue.
    Amazing work, though I don't particularly like the voice of the narrator. He sounds like a snob.

    Brilliant

    Absolutely brilliant content, excellently read. Graeber could be verbose but it always results in diligently making his point in several contexts.

    Anarchists rewriting history

    Unreadable, leftist garbage of a book without any actionable ideas for the real world we are living in. The authors are self-proclaimed anarchists and thus cherry-picked and spinned their sources to comply with their ideological worldview, "rewriting" history. Absolutely worthless read, unless you are in a socialist reading club, then go for it.

    Eye-opening view on early history and its impacts

    Very clear abd descriptive explanations, lot of examples. Our view on the past and the present need to change.
