In On a proposed Communist settlement, Kropotkin warns a group of communists about the dangers isolated communes face in the real world. With clear and precise insight developed by his early work as a geographer, he outlines the risks such communities face when starting, the problems existing social and economic models have in small numbers and the difficulties faced by the isolation and separation from day-to-day life and the literal invasion faced by those who do manage to achieve success.
This edition also features a preface by Sydney anarchist and ecologist Graham Purchase.
