Abstract:

The All-Russian Public Committee (ARPC) for perpetuating the memory of P. A. Kropotkin, the most famous Russian theorist of anarchism, was established in 1921 after his death on 8 February. It reflected many disagreements in Russia’s anarchist movement, as well as contradictions between scientific and political activities within the Committee itself. These unsolved problems led to its conflict with the Soviet Union and the latter’s annihilation. The ARPC’s failure to resolve these contradictions was not its main mistake. However, it had significant scientific, publishing and museum achievements which enabled Peter Kropotkin’s creative heritage to be preserved, at least to some extent.
