Book Review: David Graeber and David Wengrow, The Dawn of Everything - A New History of Humanity, Penguin Books: London 2021, pp.49-51.
The introduction to The Dawn of Everything describes how it took anthropologist, activist, public intellectual of international repute, and professor of anthropology at the London School of Economics, David Graeber, and archaeologist David Wengrow more than ten years to complete. Undertaken originally as a diversion from their academic duties, its drafting became a daily occurrence. The book is dedicated to Graeber, who died on 2 September 2020, just over three weeks after the books completion.

Keywords: Civilization, World History, Anthropology, Inequality, Enlightenment
