Prince Peter (Pyotr) Alexeyevich Kropotkin (1842-1921) was one of Russia's foremost anarchists and one of the first advocates of anarchist communism. The model of society he advocated for most of his life was that of a communalist society free from central government. Because of his title of prince and his prominence as an anarchist in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, he was known by some as "the Anarchist Prince." Some contemporaries saw him as leading a near perfect life. Oscar Wilde called him "the new Christ coming out of Russia. " His most prominent scientific offering was Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution (1902). He also left behind many books, pamphlets and articles amongst which are Fields, Factories and Workshops (1912) and The Conquest of Bread (1892).
