In the best tradition of participant observation, anthropologist David Graeber undertakes the first detailed enthnographic study of the global justice movement. Starting with the assumption that a disinterested objective perspective is impossible when dealing with the possibilities of global transformation and emerging political forms, he writes as both a scholar and an activist. At the same time, his experiment in the application of ethnographic methods to import ongoing political events is a serious and unique contribution to the field of anthropology.
