My experience with David Graeber's work began with his monumental "Debt: The First 5000 Years" - a book I have recommended to more students than I can count. That book draws on an amazing array of ethnographic data to make a larger, theoretical point. So does "Direct Action: An Ethnography," in a slightly different way.
The book chronicles the buildup and execution of a large scale direct action protest. Graeber's detailed ethnographic writing draw you into this moment in time and the book serves to tell the tale in a way that offers plenty of object lessons in how to lay seige to the institutions of industrial capitalism. Graeber's commitment to activism and his willingness to place his body on the line are inspirational.

An excellent book. This book changed some of the ways I view civil disobedience. Well worth a read if you are interested in that topic.
