The State: Its Historic Role


Product Information

More incisive analysis from the dude with the unfeasible beard.

The state - centralised, coercive authority - is there not just to keep law and order or to settle disputes, but to promote, uphold and defend systems of social and economic inequality - in other words, class interests. According to the author of this seminal anarchist text there is only one way of really understanding the State, and that is to study its historic development. That is just what Kropotkin does in this brilliant, erudite and provocative essay. In subjecting the build-up of statist forms of power to his critical analysis he demonstrates a radical and comprehensive understanding both of the nature of the state and the social conditions that support it.
