Bakunin, Mikhail (Aleksandrovich)


Bakunin, Mikhail (Aleksandrovich)
born May 30, 1814, Premukhino, Russia
died July 1, 1876, Bern, Switz.

Russian anarchist and political writer.

He traveled in western Europe and was active in the Revolutions of 1848. After attending the Slav congress in Prague, he wrote the manifesto "An Appeal to Slavs" (1848). Arrested for revolutionary intrigues in Germany (1849), he was sent to Russia and exiled to Siberia. He escaped in 1861 and returned to western Europe, where he continued his militant anarchist teachings. At the First International (1872) he engaged in a famous quarrel with Karl Marx, which split the European revolutionary movement.
