Abstract: Black Rose Books has republished The Conquest of Bread by Peter Kropotkin, the Russian anarchist, with an introduction by George Woodcock. This is the latest volume in the Collected Works of Kropotkin which Black Rose is publishing. Kropotkin described The Conquest of Bread as "a study of the needs of humanity, and of the economic means to satisfy them". He envisioned a society in which men and women, joined by the natural bonds of cooperative effort, would be rid of the artificiality of bureaucratic states and massive industrial complexes.
