INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A dramatically new understanding of human history, challenging our most fundamental assumptions about social evolution??from the development of agriculture and cities to the origins of the state, democracy, and inequality??and revealing new possibilities for human emancipation.

For generations, our remote ancestors have been cast as primitive and childlike??either free and equal innocents, or thuggish and warlike. Civilization, 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 eighteenth century as a conservative reaction to powerful critiques of European society posed by Indigenous observers and intellectuals. Revisiting this encounter has startling implications for how we make sense of human history today, including the origins of farming, property, cities, democracy, slavery, and civilization itself.
Drawing on pathbreaking research in archaeology and anthropology, the authors show how history becomes a far more interesting place once we learn to throw off our conceptual shackles and perceive what's really there. If humans did not spend 95 percent 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 organization did they lead to? The answers are often unexpected, and suggest that the course of human history may be less set in stone, and more full of playful, hopeful possibilities, than we tend to assume.
The Dawn of Everything fundamentally transforms our understanding of the human past and offers a path toward imagining new forms of freedom, new ways of organizing society. This is a monumental book of formidable intellectual range, animated by curiosity, moral vision, and a faith in the power of direct action.

This sprawling book is hard to describe because it is a sprawling book covering spans of time from pre-Ice Ages to the 20th century, and cultures found all over the world. I found it fascinating to read/listen to. But I also found it a little frustrating that, by the end of it, I could not easily summarize their conclusions. And I think the authors are okay with this because they knew they were tackling a big, big intellectual puzzle.
So if you have the time to invest, I would suggest you give it a go. ( )

Loved this book for completely changing my perspective on ancient civilization and human history. ( )

een boek dat de gangbare opvattingen over de geschiedenis van de mensheid in twijfel trekt. De auteurs stellen dat de mensheid oorspronkelijk leefde in egalitaire samenlevingen, waarin er geen sprake was van ongelijkheid, discriminatie of oorlog. Deze samenlevingen waren gebaseerd op samenwerking, vrijheid en diversiteit.
Graeber en Wengrow baseren hun argumenten op een uitgebreide studie van archeologische en antropologische gegevens. Ze beschrijven prehistorische megasteden, onontdekte matriarchaten, landbouwweigeraars en andere verrassende samenlevingen die ons huidige beeld van de geschiedenis onherroepelijk doen kantelen.

Het boek is een belangrijke bijdrage aan het debat over de toekomst van de mensheid. Het laat zien dat ongelijkheid en discriminatie niet ingebakken hoeven te zitten in een complexe samenleving. Als we dit idee loslaten, kunnen we met meer inventiviteit en daadkracht onze huidige samenleving inrichten.

Hier zijn enkele van de belangrijkste punten uit het boek:

De landbouwrevolutie was niet de noodzaak die vaak wordt aangenomen, maar een keuze die werd gemaakt door een kleine groep mensen.
Veel prehistorische samenlevingen waren egalitair en gebaseerd op samenwerking.
Ongelijkheid en discriminatie zijn relatief recente ontwikkelingen.
De geschiedenis laat zien dat een andere wereld mogelijk is. ( )

Het beste wat ze bieden zijn suggesties en vertrekpunten. Een boek vol pretenties over de menselijke geschiedenis, vol bezwaren tegen de gangbare opvattingen, welke als gewoon onjuist worden weggezet. Het boek zou een intellectueel feestmaal moeten zijn, maar het eten is moeilijk verteerbaar. Grote kans dat de lezer snel afhaakt. Taaie kost. Zeker geen "opwindende leeservaring (The Guardian)". ( )

The title is no joke. The breadth and depth of this non-fiction work is stunning in its range and detail, about the origins, dietary decisions and political systems of societies as far back as 15,000 years. I never felt glad to put it down. I had read other books by David Graeber, which were gripping. This one exceeded my expectations, which had been high. It is one of those creations where I frequently wondered, "How did he learn this vast area and amount history, archeology & anthropology in one lifetime?" ( )
