"It was Proudhon's book What is Property? that convinced the young Karl 
Marx that private property should be abolished.

In one of his first works, The Holy Family, Marx said, "Not only does 
Proudhon write in the interest of the proletarians, he is himself a 
proletarian, an ouvrier. His work is a scientific manifesto of the 
French proletariat." Marx, however, disagreed with Proudhon's anarchism 
and later published vicious criticisms of Proudhon. Marx wrote The 
Poverty of Philosophy as a refutation of Proudhon's The Philosophy of 
Poverty. In his socialism, Proudhon was followed by Mikhail Bakunin. 
After Bakunin's death, his libertarian socialism diverged into anarchist 
communism and collectivist anarchism, with notable proponents such as 
Peter Kropotkin and Joseph Déjacque."
