Alastair Bonnett

To bring the sea quite round them: On the lives and deaths of islands.

Geographer Alastair Bonnett explores the births, lives and deaths of islands on planet Earth - as cockpits of global capital and emerging sites of military power, as spaces of refuge and accumulation, and as enduring reminders of our desire for a utopia just beyond our shores.

Alastair is author of Elsewhere: A Journey into our Age of Islands from University of Chicago Press.
