The fourth in AK Press' Working Classics series, The Conquest of Bread is Peter Kropotkin's most extensive study of human needs and his outline of the most rational and equi-table means of satisfying them. A combination of detailed historical analysis and far-reaching utopian vision, this is a step-by-step guide to social revolution: the concrete means of achieving it, and the world that humanity's "constructive genius" is capable of creating. Includes a new introduction that historically situates and discusses the contemporary relevance of Kropotkin's ideas.
