Description - Kropotkin by Ruth Kinna

Ruth Kinna reassesses Kropotkin's political thought and suggests that the 'classical' tradition which has provided a lens for the discussion of his work has had a distorting effect on the interpretation of his ideas. By setting the analysis of his thought in a number of key historical contexts, she reveals the enduring significance of his political thought and questions the usefulness of those approaches to the history of ideas that map historical changes to philosophical and theoretical shifts. One of the key arguments of the book is that Kropotkin contributed to the elaboration of an anarchist ideology, which has been badly misunderstood and which today is too often dismissed as outdated. Kinna corrects some popular myths about Kropotkin's thought, explains his unique contribution to the history of socialist ideas and sheds new light on the nature of anarchist ideology.
