Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

The frontier of political power lies beyond the state and between emerging corporate actors.


The nation-state can still proclaim all its old principles about being a nation, but it now has a number of other partners in which it can double itself. It has a new set of pirates, a new set of doppelgangers, a new set of shadow agents than can work on behalf of the nation in the global market.

Architect Keller Easterling defines the concept of Extrastatecraft – where the formulas and networks of global capitalism forge new political realities between states and non-state actors.

Keller is the author of the new book Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space, which is sort of hard to describe, but amazing.
