Books Info:

The Utopia of Rules free pdf David Graeber's The Utopia of Rules is an engaging, revelatory account of the way bureaucracy rules our lives. Where does the desire for endless rules, regulations and bureaucracy come from? How did we come to spend so much of our time filling out forms? And is it really a cipher for state violence? To answer these questions, the anthropologist David Graeber - one of our most important and provocative thinkers - traces the peculiar and unexpected ways we relate to bureaucracy today, and reveals how it shapes our lives in ways we may not even notice.
