Fields, Factories, and Workshops is a meticulously researched and brilliantly argued outline for redirecting agricultural and industrial production in a world of shrinking resources and increasing human needs. More prophetic then utopian, this volume remains remarkably pertinent to economic conditions at the end of the twentieth century. With a long intellectual precedent, Kropotkin's rejection of the traditional division of labor presupposes reorganized societies in which nations become economically self-sufficient and abandon global rivalry. His survey of worldwide economic development reveals penetrating insight into the potential of nations just beginning to emerge as major powers. This volume will be on continuing interest to historians, economists, sociologists, and labor studies specialists.

Introduction by George WoodcockIt would not be an exaggeration to describe this book as the central work of Kropotkin's writing career. In one way or another, it occupied more than twenty years of his life. It is a work of argument and suggestion rather than dogmatic statement, and the very tentativeness of this great book make its perceptions all the more relevant.With at one time Kropotkin's view of our future might have been regarded as a Utopian dream, today, as a result of the growing realization that the world's resources of energy and raw materials are finite, that food is our most precious commodity and that people's working lives are futile and stultifying, the lessons of this book, for both the rich world and the poor, are topical and hopeful.In addition to a general introduction to the most significant aspects of Kropotkin's life and thought, George Woodcock has prepared a comprehensive afterword to each essay, allowing the reader to fully see Kropotkin's ideas in the context of the world a century later.Is the 9th volume of the The Collected Works of Peter Kropotkin.Table of contentsEditor's IntroductionPreface to the Second EditionPreface to the First EditionChapter 1The Decentralization of IndustriesEditor's Afterword to Chapter 1Chapter 2The Possibilities of AgricultureEditor's Afterword to Chapter 2Chapter 3Small Industries and Industrial VillagesEditor's Afterword to Chapter 3Chapter 4Brain Work and Manual WorkEditor's Afterword to Chapter 4Chapter 5ConclusionEditor's Epilogue1994: 255 pages, index

This book comprises a fascinating discussion of the future of agriculture as conceived at the start of the twentieth century. It explores the advantages which societies could derive from a combination of industrial pursuits with intensive agriculture, and 'brain work' with manual work. This is a book that is sure to appeal to those with a keen interest in the history of agriculture, and is a text not to be missed by the discerning collector of vintage farming literature. Chapters include: 'The Decentralisation of Industries', 'The Possibilities of Agriculture', 'Small Industries and Industrial Villages', 'Brain Work and Manual Work', and more. Pyotr Alexeyevich Kropotkin (1842–1921) was a Russian writer, activist, revolutionary, economist, scientist, sociologist, essayist, historian, researcher, political scientist, geographer, geographer, biologist, philosopher and advocate of anarcho-communism. He was a prolific writer, producing a large number of pamphlets and articles, the most notable being “The Conquest of Bread and Fields, Factories and Workshops” and “Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution”. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an excerpt from “Comrade Kropotkin” by Victor Robinson.
