This book covers the following topics: The nature of the state. The concept of the abolition of the state, in the anarchist and Marxist traditions. How concepts of the state affect the question of reform versus revolution. The Marxist concept of a transitional state and its limitations. How anarchists may conceive of a post-statist society carrying out the social tasks of defending society from counterrevolutionary armies, or from antisocial individuals. How anarchists may conceive of social coordination in a nonstatist society. Whether productive technology is necessarily in conflict with a nonstatist society. How nonstatism is consistent with a cooperative, experimental, noncapitalist, social system. A conception of anarchism as a radical extention of democracy.

These concepts are grounded in a review of historical revolutions, particularly the Russian Revolution and the Spanish Revolution, as well as the struggle against the rise of fascism in Italy and Germany.
