I started reading Graeber and loved him So then a few years ago I had this great idea to read all of his other work This book was I think his first and it dealt exclusively with his anthropological work in Madagascar Now I don t know a lot about Madagascar or its history but Graeber certainly opened some windows so I could get a better picture Then after reading about half of it I put the book down for two years or so Recently I went back and finished it Originally I was trying really hard to pronounce terms people and places correctly in my head which slowed me down And then I wasn t sure if I was being correct So seeing that the book was pretty narrowly focused on the legacies of colonialism and slavery in Madagascar and what those legacies have meant for the people and their rituals and beliefs who live there now I became bored with it Going back and finishing it was helpful and also interesting I let go some of my own searching for connections in his other works relaxed on the pronunciation and enjoyed the second half It was by a lot uicker and was fairly compelling Graeber can be uite verbose whether it s direct action or magic in Madagascar Depending on your interests this can be a good thing a bad thing or somewhere in the middle
