Overview

Oscar Wilde deemed his life "perfect," and described him as a man with "a soul of that beautiful white Christ which seems coming out of Russia." He is PETER ALEXEYEVICH KROPOTKIN (1842-1921), communist advocate and "anarchist prince."

A member of the Russian aristocracy and the best known of the revolutionaries before Lenin, Kropotkin originally serialized the story of his life and work for The Atlantic Monthly magazine, from September 1898 through September 1899, and when published in book form, it became his best known work.

From his privileged childhood to his role in upending the social order during the turmoil of the late-19th-century Europe, this is an extraordinary firsthand account of a fabled time and place, told by a writer of exquisite insight and talent.
