Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Two stars thanks to the remarkable examples of mutual aid in the animal kingdom. The rest was utter nonsense, a very one-sided reflection in which individual cases are generalized to prove wrong those who hold other beliefs.

What also has made this a terrible experience is the quality of the print. Missing chapters and headers, etc. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view piote, click here. There were many points mentioned that provided good support to the argument for mutual aid and the extension to the theories of Darwinism pertaining to the sociability of a species. These included the comparison of animals and human organization and civilization.

Despite the strong arguments the unfocused part of his work related to apparent views of kropotkin that contradict his main argument. Such opinions aligned with elitist, nationalist, and even racist views. Such views may have no effect There were many points mentioned that provided good support to the argument for mutual aid and the extension to the theories of Korpotkin pertaining to the sociability of a species.

Such views may have no effect on his credibility at the time of this work among a Eurocentric audience but it would most certainly reduce his credibility now even if his overall message seem to have different intentions. One of these contradictions include the comparison of certain races.

He would note his belief that Europeans have superior intellectual capabilities than Native Americans and other indigenous ethnic groups. Another example is very similar to the earlier mentioned is his belief that certain cultures or civilizations are superior or better than others.

You pjotr find this from areas where he would note “civilized” kutuo “uncivilized” cultures or nations. In many cases the uncivilized groups would embrace his ideals of communalism and mutual aid the most. A stronger argument would perhaps lift up such nations negatively classified because they embraced those ideals instead of simply contradict your argument by supporting the same elitist rhetoric. Sociability, common ownership, and mutual aid were all arguments well supported in this work.


There were many references of area within the animal kingdom and human civilization that not only showed that these ideas occurred but they were functional. Unfortunately the writer’s tendency to embrace common thoughts of elitism clouded the premises of his cause.

I thought this would be pick as I have read Kropotkin before, and have enjoyed his work previously, but based on the description of this book, I was worried that this book would be a bit too focused on mutual aid and how it impacted evolution, and I was right.

Overall, it feels like this book could have been much better, if it was a quarter of its length. Instead of having multiple chapters I wanted to read a book on anarchy with a little book club I’m in to introduce my wife and mom to anarchy. Instead of having multiple chapters giving an exhausting number of examples to how animals use mutual aid to their advantage, three or so examples would suffice and would probably drive the point home just as well if the most extreme examples were used.

Rather than beating a point into your head with a relentless number of examples, just make your point, give some examples to back it up, and move on.

The books structure starts zpoyo animals, and how animals that have mutual aid and support each other, fare better, especially compared to if they were on their own. It then moves to primitive man. It shows how primitive man used mutual aid to their advantage, and almost never fought within the same clan. He goes into how their structure was much better than the government at the time.

How all decisions were made as a group, and there was relatively little crime. He then shows how as humans advanced they started to move away from a decentralized structure into a formal monarchy and all the problems that this brought.

As the land was taken from peasants for the monarch, and guilds were banned the state of disarray that ensued. Whenever the people would have a chance to go back to assisting each other in mutual aid, they would even if it had to be done in secret or with the threat of law against them.

Unfortunately there is very little said about socialism and anarchy throughout paoyo book. Anarchy is not talked about at all, and socialism, only very little in passing. Although this book indirectly correlates to anarchy, it’s more about how working together kropotki everyone, and you have to draw your own conclusions and relate it to anarchy.

It was definitely not a good read as an introduction to anarchy, unless it’s against an argument that people are naturally greedy, selfish, and how capitalism is better, then this book could be a good argument against it, but again, with drawing your own conclusions from it. I’m not sure if it’s because I read this book with other people and was actively discussing it as we were reading it, but it seemed so much longer and more boring than books I have read in the past.


It was awfully dry and, with the exception of the piott couple of chapters, not very interesting. In the last couple of chapters there are some sections where it talks about the harm that organized religion does; as well as the divide between the rich and the poor, and why the poor are much more likely to help each other than the rich; as well as talking about how different occupations can cause more or less cooperation “Man is a result of both his inherited instincts and his education.

Among the miners and the seamen, their common occupations and their every-day contact with one another create a feeling of solidarity, while the surrounding dangers maintain courage and pluck”; it also talks about how everyday people are generally not shown to be heroes because it’s in the state’s best interest to promote soldiers and those fighting for their country, and church wants heroes to be those who are directly inspired by God, and only showing greatness when it relates to religion.

So there are some pretty great parts to this book, but it’s buried between an exhaustive number of examples to back up points that piofr made in this book. I would have liked this book much more if it dealt more directly with anarchy and was much shorter.

One of the first advocates of anarchist communism, Kropotkin advocated a communist society free from central government. Because of his title of prince, he was known by some as “the Anarchist Prince”.

Some contemporaries saw him as leading a near perfect life, including Oscar Wilde, who described him as “a man with a soul of that beautiful white Christ which seems coming out of Russia.
