Born in 1842 into an ancient military family of Russian princes, Kropotkin was selected as a child for the elite Corps of Pages by Tsar Nicholas I himself. Shortly before his death in 1921, he had moved so far from his aristocratic beginnings and attained such stature as a libertarian leader that he could write with impunity to Lenin, "Vladimir Ilyich, your concrete actions are completely unworthy of the ideas you pretend to hold."The Anarchist Prince details the life that flowed between these two points in time - Kropotkin's rejection of an army career, his awakening to anarchist principles, his arrest and daring escape from Russia to the West, his impressive scientific achievements, his exile in England, and, most of all, his unfailing devotion to humanity.
