Summary

In this work, Kropotkin points out what he considers to be the fallacies of the economic systems of feudalism and capitalism, and how he believes they create poverty and scarcity while promoting privilege. He goes on to propose a more decentralised economic system based on mutual aid and voluntary cooperation, asserting that the tendencies for this kind of organisation already exist, both in evolution and in human society.

Reviews

Rootless

- Reader

This book is an essential read for all those wishing for greater understanding of the beliefs of the much misunderstood anarcho-communists.

Philonous

- Reader

This is a rating of the reader, not the content of the book. I can't understand practically anything he says in English.
