Interpreting Marx's Theory of the State and Opposition to Anarchism

Though Marx intended to dedicate a volume of Capital to the question of 'the State', he died before he could even begin that work.

My analysis investigates the shifts and contradictions in their thought, as well as the utility these contradictions served in misrepresenting the anarchist alternative.
