"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

A largely self-educated worker whose incendiary ideas were more influential than those of Karl Marx during his lifetime, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon's social and economic ideas have been a source of inspiration and debate since 1840. 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.

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1809–1869) was one of the most important and influential political theorists of the nineteenth century, and the first man to call himself an "anarchist." His most famous works include What is Property? An Inquiry into the Principle of Right and of GovernmentThe System of Economic Contradictions, or The Philosophy of Misery; and The General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century.

Iain McKay is the author of An Anarchist FAQ.
