"A trailblazing account of human history, challenging our most fundamental assumptions about social evolution-from the development of agriculture and cities to the emergence of "the state," political violence, and social inequality-and revealing new possibilities for human emancipation. For generations, our remote ancestors have been cast as primitive and childlike--either free and equal innocents, or thuggish and warlike. Civilization, we are told, could be achieved only by sacrificing those original freedoms or, alternatively, by taming our baser instincts. David Graeber and David Wengrow show how such theories first emerged in the eighteenth century as a conservative reaction to powerful critiques of European society posed by Indigenous observers and intellectuals. Revisiting this encounter has startling implications for how we make sense of human history today, including the origins of farming, property, cities, democracy, slavery, and civilization itself. Drawing on pathbreaking research in archaeology and anthropology, the authors show how history becomes a far more interesting place once we learn to throw off our conceptual shackles and perceive what's really there. If humans did not spend 95 percent of their evolutionary past in tiny bands of hunter-gatherers, what were they doing all that time? If agriculture, and cities, did not mean a plunge into hierarchy and domination, then what kinds of social and economic organization did they lead to? The answers are often unexpected, and suggest that the course of human history may be less set in stone, and more full of playful, hopeful possibilities, than we tend to assume. The Dawn of Everything fundamentally transforms our understanding of the human past and offers a path toward imagining new forms of freedom, new ways of organizing society."--… (més)

Het begin van alles is een revolutionaire herziening van de geschiedenis van de mensheid. Het neemt je mee op een duizelingwekkende en meeslepende rit die 30.000 jaar en de hele planeet omspant.
Antropoloog David Graeber en archeoloog David Wengrow tonen aan dat het gangbare verhaal over het ontstaan van de mensheid - denk aan de boeken van Steven Pinker, Jared Diamond en Yuval Noah Harari - niet klopt. Ze beschrijven prehistorische megasteden, onontdekte matriarchaten, landbouwweigeraars en andere verrassende samenlevingen die ons huidige beeld van de geschiedenis onherroepelijk doen kantelen.
Deze internationale bestseller rekent definitief af met oude beperkende mythen die ons wereldbeeld tekortdoen. De geschiedenis laat zien dat ongelijkheid en discriminatie niet ingebakken hoeven te zitten in een complexe samenleving. Als we dit idee loslaten, kunnen we met meer inventiviteit en daadkracht onze huidige samenleving inrichten. Het is hoog tijd voor een nieuwe blik op de mensheid. ( )

This is a history book unlike any other. Honestly, it focuses much more on anthropology and archaeology than it does history but so what?! Graeber and Wengrow provide a completely new vision of the origins of human society. Definitely worth reading. ( )

This book challenges the standard narrative of how human civilization developed, which means that it also challenges the standard view of where we are now, and where we may go. It does this by looking at evidence -- the mass of new archeological and anthropological discoveries over the past forty years . It also (and simultaneously) shifts points of view, from Euro-centrism to a worldwide view with emphasis on the Western Hemisphere. And it proposes alternative views of what happened. This is an awful lot for one book, and can seem too much in the "could have been, was probably, was" vein, or too harshly critical of other scholars. But even so it really changed my views of the past. In the language of my youth, I would describe it as "mind blowing". In the language of today, I'll use the tamer "mind opening". ( )

It is impossible to summarize an almost 700 page book in a sentence or two. The authors observe that many recent discussions of human history attempt to explain the origins of inequality. There is also a strong belief that original human societies, bands of foragers, did not display inequality. The growth of inequality is usually seen as the result of the development of agriculture which was believed necessary for the development of specialists, rise of armies and autocratic leaders, either political, religious or both. The authors postulate three basic freedoms: freedom to move (I.e. relocate), freedom to disobey, and freedom to create or transform social relationships. They describe recent archaeological evidence that suggests that peoples in the past have deliberately retreated from and rebelled against oppressive societies such as the slave owning tribes of the Pacific Northwest, and the urban center of Cahokia, among others. They emphasize the idea that humans are active participants in the formation of culture, not helpless pawns of technological change. I really recommend this book.
