The concept of the state is fundamental to understanding capitalist society and the revolutionary process. This important booklet clarifies what Engels and Marx said about the conditions in which the state exists and its role in class society. Lenin counters the distortions that are propagated by capitalist writers and explains the well-known term “withering away of the state.”
