An Appeal to the Young
An Appeal to the Young was first published in 1880 in Kropotkin’s paper, La Revolte, and was soon thereafter issued as a pamphlet. It has been published in all major languages of the world and even today it’s appeal is as soul-stirring and effective as it was in his times.
This is addressed to the young generation at the threshold of entering into the professions. Every young man and woman has this question: “What am I going to be?”. Kropotkin argues with his young friends that after having spent time learning trades and sciences at the cost of society it is our turn to put our knowledge and experience to the service of the people and not make use of our “acquirements as instruments of plunder” for our own gain. He asks the young people to look beyond the narrow boundaries of their professions and ponder what for they have acquired their skills. With logic and passion Kropotkin appeals to the younger generation ready to launch its career that it can either “develop an insatiable longing for pleasure at any price” or apply their intelligence, abilities and knowledge to “help on the enfranchisement of those who today grovel in misery and in ignorance”.
Prince Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921) was a well-known Anarchist revolutionary of Russia. He was an eminent geographer and geologist but left everything to join the revolutionary movement in 1870. He was arrested but he escaped abroad and settled in England in 1886.
Probabilities of the Quantum World
This book was first published in 1983 but has been unavailable for a long time. Daniel Semenovich Danin’s book presents a fascinating account of the first three decades of the previous century when the edifice of quantum mechanics was built with the participation of scientists from all over the world. It is not a drab account of the events and theories but “a mixture of ideas and passions, moments of inspiration and despair, joy and sadness….”
We hope readers will enjoy this introduction to quantum physics written by one of the finest popular science writers.
