Johann Joseph "Hans" Most was born in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany. He was a German-American revolutionary and newspaper editor. He is credited with popularizing the concept of "Propaganda of the deed". In 1867, he moved to Vienna where he joined the International Working Men's Association. A committed socialist he became a well-known street orator. Most was jailed three times for his political activities and in 1871 he was deported from Austria. He returned to Germany where he worked as a journalist. In 1874, he was elected to the German Reichstag but after the passing of anti-socialist laws he was forced to flee the country. In 1878 Most arrived in London where he converted to anarchism. In 1882, he emigrated to the United States and settled in Chicago. He wrote several books include: Science of Revolutionary Warfare, and Military Science for Revolutionaires.
