The Conquest Of Bread Cla




With its optimistic vision of a non-hierarchical society of grass-roots democracy and self-sufficient communities, this powerful 1892 work by 'anarchist prince' Peter Kropotkin has influenced activists the world over, from nineteenth-century workers to 1960s student radicals and the Occupy movement.

'Well-being for all is not a dream.'

In this brilliantly enjoyable, challenging rallying-cry of a book, Kropotkin lays out the heart of his anarchist beliefs - beliefs which surged around the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and which have a renewed relevance and poignancy today. Humane, thoughtful - but also a devastating critique of how modern society is organized (with the brutal, narrow few clinging onto their wealth and privileges at the expense of the many), The Conquest of Bread is a book to be argued over, again and again.
