Anarchism/Anti-State

Students, Anarchists and Categories of Persecution In Chile, 1920

By Raymond Craib
My work circulates around the intersection of space and politics. My first book examined the cartographic routines that helped create the Mexican state in the 19th and 20th centuries. My second book examined the persecution of young anarchists, workers and poets in early twentieth century Santiago, Chile and is a species of urban history and political geography. My most recent book, forthcoming in June 2022, is Adventure Capitalism and recounts the history of market-libertarians (I don’t like the term anarcho-capitalists) who tried to exit the nation-state in the 1960s and 1970s and create their own private archipelagoes in Oceania and the Caribbean. The last third of the book looks at more current efforts–such as seasteading and free private cities–in relation to these earlier efforts.
