By The Gateway – A Podcast from the Middle East
This week, we hear from Raymond B. Craib, Marie Underhill Noll Professor of American History at Cornell University.
Raymond discusses his latest book, Adventure Capitalism: A History of Libertarian Exit, from the Era of Decolonization to the Digital Age, published by PM Press in 2022.
From islands to space utopias, the world’s elite have for decades directed their wealth to escape the injustices they have, in no small part, contributed to.
In the book, Craib explores in careful detail the ideology and practice of libertarian exit and its place in the histories of contemporary capitalism, decolonization, empire, and oceans and islands.
