Kropotkin was from a noble Russian family. This book is divided into two parts--his formative years and his years in exile.

His life in Russia included sarvice as a naturalist, where he observed the behavior of a variety of animal species, a data base that led to his writing of "Mutual Aid." Over time, he began to get interested in radical political views, specificially anarchism. He spent time in prison, until a remarkable escape.

Then, his years in exile, where he wrote many of his works on political theory and was also active in radical politics. Finally, his return to Russia late in his life. His funeral? Lenin himself allowed a public funeral for this man who represented a political philosophy utterly at odds with Marxism and Leninism.

A serviceable and nicely written biography. . . ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
"Peter Kropotkin has been largely ignored as a utopian crackpot, but Brian Morris demonstrates in this wide-ranging and detailed analysis that Kropotkin addressed significantly and perceptively the major issues of the present day.Morris offers a balanced presentation and interesting commentary on the thought of a host of other important thinkers." -- Harold B. Barclay, professor emeritus, University of Alberta

The nineteenth century witnessed the growth of anarchist literature, which advocated a society based on voluntary cooperation without governmental authority.Although his classical writings on mutual aid and the philosophy of anarchism are still published today, Peter Kropotkin remains a neglected figure.A talented geographer and a revolutionary socialist, Kropotkin--often known as the anarchist prince--was one of the most important theoreticians of the anarchist movement.His treasury of fertile ideas undoubtedly stirred the imagination of his generation.While scholars churn out academic texts by the bucketload on such reactionaries as Nietzsche and Heidegger, Kropotkin's radical humanism and anarchist philosophy have been all but forgotten.

In KROPOTKIN: THE POLITICS OF COMMUNITY, Brian Morris reaffirms with an attitude of critical sympathy the contemporary relevance of Kropotkin as a political and moral philosopher and as a pioneering social ecologist.Well-researched and wide-ranging, this volume not only presents an importnat contribution to the history of anarchism, both as a political tradition and as a social movement, but also offers insightful reflections on contemporary debates in political theory and ecological thought.After a short biographical note, the book analyzes in four parts Kropotkin's writings on anarchist communism, agrarian socialism, and integral education; modern science and evolutionary theory; the French Revolution and the modern state; and possessive individualism, terrorism, and war.

Standing as a comprehensive and engaging introduction to his anarchism, his social ecology, and his philosophy of evolutionary holism, KROPOTKIN is written in a straightforward manner that will appeal to those interested in social anarchism and in alternatives to neoliberal doctrines. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!
This work by Peter Kropotkin's is, I say this without reservations, a work of genius and an amazing reflection on the life of an amazing man.Kropotkin's stories of his childhood and his relations with his servants and other lower-calss individuals (he was born a prince) are very interesting, as are his tales of exploration.His version of anarcho-socialism is very intriguing, largely because he bears no hate or grudge towards anyone and he is a very gentle man.In his book, it becomes clear (without him saying it, of course) that he did not recognize just how unique of a man he was.This book is filled with marvelous anecdotes, from cutting political commentary to fascinating stories of journeys down the Amur River to a splendid little collection of stupid Russian Spy stories.This book is fantastic.

5-0 out of 5 stars A little more background
Prince Piotr Alekseyevich Kropotkin, 1842-1921, was a Russian geographer and anarchist. He came from a wealthy princely family and as a boy was a page to the czar. Repelled by court life, he obtained permission to serve as an army officer in Siberia, where his explorations and scientific observations established his reputation as a geographer. After returning to European Russia, he became an adherent of the Bakuninist faction of the narodniki and engaged in clandestine propaganda activities until arrested in 1874. Two years later he escaped to Western Europe, where he worked with various anarchist groups until his imprisonment in France (1883). Pardoned in 1886, partly as the result of the popular clamor for his release, he moved to England and spent the next 30 years mainly as a scholar and writer developing a coherent anarchist theory. In his most famous book, Mutual Aid (1902), he attacked T. H. Huxley and the Social Darwinists for their picture of nature and human society as essentially competitive. He insisted that cooperation and mutual aid were the norms in both the natural and social worlds. From this perspective he developed a theory of social organizationin Fields, Factories and Workshops (1898) and elsewherethat was based upon communes of producers linked with each other through common custom and free contract. Returning to Russia following the February Revolution of 1917, he attempted to engender support for a continued Russian effort in World War I and to combat the rising influence of Bolshevism. Following the Bolshevik triumph in the October Revolution (1917), he retired from active politics. Consistently nonviolent in his anarchist beliefs, Kropotkin,as both thinker and man, was admired and acclaimed by many far removed from anarchist circles.

5-0 out of 5 stars History will prove this man more foresighted than we know!
This intelligent and kind man all too often falls through the cracks of history.People forget that there was a completely different school of socialist thought that existed concurrently with the ideas of Marx. Kropotkin, like many others who believed in the ability of people to maketheir own economic relations, had the distinction of being persecuted bypeople on both sides of the political spectrum.Yet his book is remarkablefor its lack of self-pity or resentment.The book is dense and full of themusings of a highly educated man of the late 19th century who indulged manyother interests besides politics. His journey is remarkable, and we canonly hope that he will become better known. ... Read more


12. Demanding the Impossible: Human Nature and Politics in Nineteenth-Century Social Anarchism (Anarchist Studies)

Editorial Review

Product Description
This text examines the relationship between anarchism's notion of human nature and its vision of a future stateless society by way of three 19th-century social anarchists: Proudhon, Bakunin and Kropotkin. It demonstrates that social anarchism operates a conception of human nature that assumes the existence of both egoism and sociability, and therefore provides a realistic assessment of human nature. The book concludes by exploring the possibilities for a reconceptualization of the anarchist conception of human nature that would help overcome the problems identified by the author and point the way for future development of anarchist thought. ...

13. Kropotkin: And the Rise of Revolutionary Anarchism, 1872-1886

list price: US$83.99
Isbn: 0521364450
Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan
Editorial Review

Product Description
This major study of Peter Kropotkin sets him firmly in the context of the development of the European anarchist movement as the man who became, after Bakunin's death, their chief exponent of anarchist ideas. It traces the origins and development of his ideas and revolutionary practice from 1872 to 1886, and assesses the subsequent influence of his life and work upon European radical and socialist movements. Dr Cahm analyses Kropotkin's role in the transformation of Bakunin's anti-authoritarian socialism, and shows how two principal types of revolutionary action emerge from anarchist efforts to develop clear alternatives to the parliamentary strategies of social democrats; one based on the activity of individuals and small groups, the other related to large-scale collective action. ...
