The state and capitalist society - Ralph Miliband

The Houses of Parliament
The Houses of Parliament, the seat of government in the UK

Marxist academic Ralph Miliband's extensive and detailed analysis and critique of the role played by the state in advanced capitalist society. It examines each part of the state, including the government, civil service, legal system and armed forces and their relationships with business, the media, religion and trade unions. Written in 1969, most of the tendencies he points to are even further advanced today, so while there is little mention of race and gender this remains an invaluable text.

Joke doing the rounds during Labour's leadership elections

`Ralph Milliband said that Labour would betray the Working Class, so he had two sons to prove it`.

My phone doesn't have much storage space, is there a thing that doesn't require me to download, like how marxists.org has their works?

Only if someone can OCR the PDF scan of the book. But OCRing books is a big piece of work, so I doubt we will be able to find someone who has the time. But it's only 10 MB. That's less than the size of 3 photos on my phone.
