Revisiting two books on debt

Both of which I browsed very superficially. The first is 'A fee nation deep in debt: The financial roots of democracy' by a banker James Macdonald. A nice review by James albraith of this and a book by Acegmolu and Robinson by James Galbraith here. The other is by the anthropologist David Graeber 'Debt: the first 5000 years'. This wikipedia article has a link to the pdf file. Here is an interview with David Graeber.
A 2010 article by Ehud Kaufman on public debt. A recent article by Derryl Hermanutz, which I did not understand, brought these back to mind: Why most people can't believe the truth about money
