Well it could have been worse; at least Graeber’s no longer fetishizing
debt and its state-military corollary.
And his conclusion – on the possibility of large-scale democracy – is
welcome.
Still, I’m glad comrades have posted rebuttals, to which I’d add this:

Patterson’s “The Inca Empire: The Formation and Disintegration of a Pre-Capitalist State”, which describes the forced assimilation of non-class based villages into the Inca empire. Also, Eleanor Leacock’s extensive body of research on indigenous peoples. Plus V. Gordon Childe’s “Man Makes Himself”. I am surprised that Graeber does not bother to engage with Marxist anthropology and focuses his article on answering Jared Diamond. _________________________________________________________ Full posting guidelines at: http://www.marxmail.org/sub.htm Set your options at: http://lists.csbs.utah.edu/options/marxism/nemonemini%40aol.com
