One of the Most Important Works on the State
Lenin's State and Revolution is arguably the most important work to date on understanding the state and its role in society. Although it was written almost 100 years ago you will read it and often think to yourself "wait a minute... that sounds like what is happening now". Indeed, things haven't changed so much.
This book is a must read for anyone interested in Marxism, Leninism, Soviet History, studies of society, capitalism and socialism, political science and so on.
