  • Property is Theft!


Mikhail Bakunin proclaimed "Proudhon is the master of us all," while for Peter Kropotkin he laid "the foundations of anarchism." Property Is Theft! collects his most important works in one volume, making many available in English for the first time. Extensively annotated and introduced by editor Iain McKay, Property Is Theft! is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the history and development of anarchist principles and practice.

"An indispensable source book for anyone interested in Proudhon's ideas and the origins of the socialist and anarchist movements in nineteenth-century Europe."-Robert Graham, editor of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas, Vol 1–3

"In the English-speaking world, Proudhon is one of the best known but least well understood anarchists, largely because the bulk of his work is not available in translation. Iain McKay's comprehensive anthology fills this gap."-Ruth Kinna author of Anarchism: A Beginner's Guide and editor of Anarchist Studies

"Even Proudhon's harshest critics, including Marx, agreed that his passion for liberty and equality was inspiring, and it's time to re-evaluate his substantive work. McKay offers a sure-footed guide through the misconceptions surrounding Proudhon's thought." -Mark Leier, author of Bakunin: The Creative Passion
