An Introduction to the Life of Peter Kropotkin

by Brian Morris


Prince Peter (Pyotr Alexeivich) Kropotkin was born into the wealthy Russian aristocracy in 1842, but chose to identify himself with the suffering of the workers and peasants. He became a convinced anarchist, opposed to the power of the state, after witnessing the brutality of the Tsarist regime. Imprisoned twice, he spent most of his life in exile. In his writings and speeches, he strove to bring about revolution by the Russian people themselves, hoping for a time when local peasant communes would govern themselves in Russia. The arrival of Bolshevism dashed these hopes, but Kropotkinís anarchist ideals were extremely influential in his time.

A geographer by profession, Kropotkin was also a fore-runner of todayís ecologists with his love and understanding of nature. He was one of the first to challenge Darwinís theory of the survival of the fittest in evolution, suggesting instead in his influential Mutual Aid (London, 1902) that human beings and other creatures also cooperate to survive.

Includes extensive bibliography and index, with enlarged text.


Brian Morris, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at Goldsmiths College, London, has written books and articles on a wide range of issues and topics in the fields of ecology, botany, philosophy, history, religion and anthropology. His titles include Western Conceptions of the Individual (Berg, 1991), The Anthropology of the Self (Pluto Press, 1994), Religion and Anthropology (Cambridge University Press, 2006) and a full-length book about Peter Kropotkin: Kropotkin Ė the Politics of Community (Humanity Press, 2004). The present volume is intended as a brief introduction to the life and beliefs of Kropotkin, whose contribution to thought in many fields is worthy of our recollection and celebration.

THE MAN WHO WAS CYRANO: A Life of Edmond Rostand,
Creator of Cyrano de Bergerac

by Sue Lloyd


This is the first full-length biography of Edmond Rostand to be published in English. Written for those who love Cyrano de Bergerac, it throws new light on the origins of his most famous play, and reveals how Rostand expressed his own character and ideals in his heroes, especially Cyrano. This book also introduces readers to his other plays, such as Chantecler, thought by some to be his masterpiece. Readers will discover a sensitive, modest poet, overwhelmed by the demands of his fame, but determined, in spite of suffering from periods of depression, to fulfil what he saw as his lifeís work, inspiring others with his own idealistic enthusiasm.


Sue Lloyd was born in Keynsham, England, and studied at Bristol University. After teaching in East Africa, she returned to England, settling in Norfolk. Here she researched her Masterís degree on Cyrano de Bergerac (University of East Anglia, 1977), which revived her longstanding interest in Edmond Rostand. In 1982, her new edition of Rogetís Thesaurus for Longman, the first for twenty years, became a world best-seller. A Penguin edition followed, along with contributions to dictionaries and other wordbooks. After a further period in East Africa, she now lives in Southwest England.
