An incomplete Kropotkin Bibliography

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

I've been working on the new Kropotkin Anthology, concentrating on listing the various works by Kropotkin. This is the first draft of my activities. As will become clear, there is a significant amount of articles which have never been translated or have not been republished from Freedom.

Some of these are important, particularly the ones on trade unionism. Thanks to this, someone who advocated direct struggle by workers against capitalism and the state has been turned into some sort of hippy... This has been done by Marxists, of course, but a few of the liberals who blighted the UK movement from the 1960s to 1980s have played their part (I don't include Colin Ward in that, although some of his followers are included). Hopefully, the material I've gathered and got translated for the new book will help present a more accurate picture of Kropotkin's politics.

Suffice to say, I have a much better understanding why Kropotkin was so highly thought of in the movement (perhaps too much!).

Anyways, I'm very busy and am finding it hard to get the time and energy needed to blog and write just now -- and when I do, it will need to be on the introduction to the Kropotkin anthology. However, I want to get a leaflet done for the TUC march on the 20th of October as well as do a talk at this year's London anarchist bookfair. But we will see...

Until I blog again, be seeing you...

 

An Incomplete Kropotkin Bibliography

This is listing of all books, pamphlets and articles by Kropotkin discovered during the research for this book. It is by no means complete, but is as comprehensive as possible. As well as original research, it draws upon the following books: Kropotkin and the Rise of Revolutionary Anarchism, 1872-1886 by Caroline Cahm, Evolution & Revolution by Graham Purchase, Kropotkin by Martin A. Miller and A Short History of Anarchism and Bibliographie De L'Anarchie both by Max Nettlau.

Kropotkin’s Collected Works (Black Rose)

George Woodcock edited Kropotkin’s Collected Works shortly before his death. In 11 volumes, it includes all his major writings as well as numerous important essays and articles.  This collection is by no means complete, missing out the articles collated in Act for Yourselves, for example, not to mention numerous articles in anarchist papers in Britain, France and Russia.

Volume 1: Memoirs of a Revolutionist (1989)

Volume 2: Great French Revolution (1989)

Volume 3: Mutual Aid: A Factor in Evolution (1989)

Volume 4: Conquest of Bread (1990)

Volume 5: Russian Literature: Ideas and Reality (1991)

Volume 6: In Russian and French Prisons (1991)

Volume 7: Words of a Rebel (1992)

Volume 8: Ethics: Origin and Development (1992)

Volume 9: Fields, Factories and Workshops (1996)

Volume 10: Fugitive Writings[1] (1993)

Volume 11: Evolution and Environment (1995)

This is a list of Kropotkin’s books. It does not attempt to list all the many translations of these works.

Comments

He was prolific, to say the

He was prolific, to say the least. Making my way through Memoirs of a Revolutionist right now. I must say that he has great insights, writes well, and represents through his life and self-activity (mostly, except for a few notable big transgressions like on WWI) an inspirational figure whose writings deserve a place on every socialists' bookshelf. Any idea how many volumes an entire collected works may include? I'm really looking forward to this release of yours. Good luck with it!

I don't know where else to

I don't know where else to post this, but I just read two good papers on workers' control within market economies that I'd like to share with you. This paper really goes into detail about the different kinds of workers' control and what worker-controlled firms need to stay worker-controlled. And this paper looks in-depth at worker-owned plywood firms in the US Northwest, analyzes their successes and failures, and comes up with ideas of how to improve worker-owned firms in a market economy.
