By Maryann Yin Comment

Melville HouseDavid Graeber landed a deal with Melville House for a new book entitled The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy.

Graeber, an anthropology professor at the London School of Economics, served as one of the principal organizers of the Occupy Wall Street movement. According to the press release, he coined the famous “We are the 99%” slogan for the protest.

With this work, Graeber “traces the peculiar and unexpected ways we relate to bureaucracy today, and reveals how it shapes our lives in ways we may not even notice.” A publication date has been scheduled for February 24, 2015.
