Kropotkin’s Revolutionary Pamphlets


Kropotkin grew up in the midst of the struggle between the peasants and workers and the government. He was born a prince of the old nobility of Moscow, was trained as a page in the Emperor’s court, and at twenty became an officer in the army. The discovery that he was engaged in revolutionary activities in St. Petersburg while he was presumably devoting his life to scientific geography, caused a sensation. He was arrested and held in prison without trial. He became at once one of the most hated and most beloved representatives of the revolutionary cause.
