"Have not prisons - which kill all will and force of character in man, which enclose within their walls more vices than are met with on any other spot of the globe - always been universities of crime?" -- Peter Kropotkin
Peter (Pyotr) Alexeyevich Kropotkin () (9 December 1842 — 8 February 1921) was a zoologist, an evolutionary theorist, geographer and one of the world's foremost anarcho-communist. One of the first advocates of anarchist communism, Kropotkin advocated a communist society free from central government and based on voluntary associations between workers. Because of his title of prince, he was known by some as "the Anarchist Prince". Some contemporaries saw him as leading a near perfect life, including Oscar Wilde, who described him as "a man with a soul of that beautiful white Christ which seems coming out of Russia." He wrote many books, pamphlets and articles, the most prominent being The Conquest of Bread and Fields, Factories and Workshops, and his principal scientific offering, A Factor of Evolution. He was also a contributor to the Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition in writing the article on anarchism .
