First published posthumously in 1923 in Russia, Kropotkin’s Siberian Diaries take us on his five year journey from St. Petersburg to Siberia, via Moscow, Kaluga, Chita, and Irkutsk. These pages immerse us in Kropotkin’s development as a brilliant scientist as he explored almost impassable terrain while also giving us a clear picture of his early political and philosophical thinking at a crucial moment in Russian history. Their first English language publication is a landmark event.
