Praise for The Democracy Project: 'Clear, pungent and right ... a compact and incisive account of why capitalism has run with such a smash into the buffers' * Times Higher Education * Graeber's talent is to take big concepts and unpack them, forcing us to examine their implications for society ... the book is a cool drink of water after so much dry, academic writing on the revolutions of 2011' * New Statesman * Captures the joys and fears of a movement * Observer * The most influential radical political thinker of the moment * New Yorker *
