"In 1876, after spending two years in a Russian prison, Peter Kropotkin made a daring escape to freedom, with the assistance of some friends and a horse named Barbarian. Kropotkin told the story of his flight from capture in his autobiography Memoirs of a Revolutionist. In 1987, World's End Press published a small edition of this tale, beautifully illustrated by Julian Watson. We have here a new edition of this inspiring story which includes Watson's illustrations, bound in textured felt cover stock, impressed with silver foil stamping."

About the Author:

Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921) was the foremost theorist of the anarchist movement. Born a Russian Prince, he rejected his title to become a revolutionary, seeking a society based on freedom, equality, and solidarity. Imprisoned for his activism in Russia and France, his writings include The Conquest of Bread; Fields, Factories, and Workshops; Anarchism, Anarchist-Communism, and the State; Memoirs of a Revolutionist; and Modern Science and Anarchism. New editions of his classic works Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution; Words of a Rebel; and The Great French Revolution, 1789-1793.
