David Graeber is an anarchist and anthropologist. He is an associate professor of anthropology at Yale University, although Yale has controversially declined to rehire him, and his term there will end in June 2007. He is the author of Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology and Towards an Anthropological Theory of Value: The False Coin of Our Own Dreams. As of January 2007, he is preparing four books for future publication. Two, Possibilities: A Book of Essays, and Direct Action: An Ethnography, are already written and in process of review by AK Press; two more (one, a history of the concept of debt; the other, an attempt to outline an anarchist version of world-systems analysis) are works still in progress.

also in the January issue of Harper's Magazine, David wrote an article entitled:
Army of Altruists, On the alienated right to do good.
