Barter and kinship systems, potlatch traditions, economies based on solidarity – ever since Karl Marx, theorists and critics have been on the lookout for an alternative to capitalism. Recounting the economic systems of indigenous societies first spotted by ethnologists in the late nineteenth century, Timo Luks reconstructs encounters between economics and social anthropology in an effort to historicise concepts still being touted as benchmarks for a post-capitalist Utopia.
