Annotation

Mostly adventure and future war, but two chapters describe eutopias that stress personal freedom in an explicitly capitalist setting. The first is a simple, escapist, South Seas Island eutopia without the usual implication of sexual freedom. The second includes all the islands of the South Seas and is a new, independent company set up by the good capitalists who have wrested control of the air from the bad anarchists.
