About this book
First published in 1979, "The Gift" is a modern classic which examines the 'gift economy'. Even more revelant now than when it first appeared, it's a brilliantly argued defence of the place of creativity in our market-oriented society. 'A masterpiece... "The Gift" is the best book I know of for the aspiring young,' Margaret Atwood
Examination of the 'gift economy' is even more relevant than when it originally appeared. It's a brilliantly argued defence of the place of creativity in our increasingly market-orientated society.
