By Eric Laursen and Maia Ramnath

Loved by our collective!

With journalistic thoroughness, Laursen explores competing understanding of the State, their relationship to concepts such as government and nation, variations on the State model, the interdependence between capital and State, the consequences of statism, and the basis for opposition to it. This accessible book offers new ideas and digressions at each turn. Abolitionists may find Laursen's treatment of surveillance and policing particularly useful. Recommended in conjunction with Prison by Any Other Name: The Harmful Consequences of Popular Reforms by Victoria Law and Maya Schenwar.
