Modern Science and Anarchy

by Peter Kropotkin - £19.95  AK Press (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781849352741 | ISBN 10: 1849352747

The definitive edition of Peter Kropotkin's final book, Modern Science and Anarchy is the summation of his forty years in the anarchist movement. It represents his theory that the doctrines of anarchism were a necessary consequence of “the great general wakening” in the natural and social sciences of the nineteenth century. He employs that awakening to explore the development of capitalism and the modern state and uses it to imagine new paths to freedom that might release working people from the institutions that enslave them.
 
First published in 1913 in France, some sections of this book have been translated and published as pamphlets or articles, but other portions have never appeared in English, nor has the whole appeared as the single volume that Kropotkin intended. Introduced and annotated by Iain McKay.
