Reading about violence in the Saami people and anarchism in anthropology

I borrowed a small tract on establishing an anarchist anthropology by Graeber, David. Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology (Chicago: Prickly Paradigm, 2004). I read two chapters today. I also borrowed a book on violence that is multidiciplinary, Anderson, Myrdene. ed. Cultural Shaping of Violence: Victimization, Escalation, Response (West Lafayette, IN: Purdue University, 2004). This second book was where I read about the Saami and the lack of violence in their culture but who would really call less violence a "lack". Just me I suppose.
