The Anarchist Concept of the Revolution - Luigi Fabbri

This text forms the bulk of a key chapter from Luigi Fabbri's 1921 work, 'Dictatorship and Revolution'. In it, Fabbri challenges popular misrepresentations of anarchism's revolutionary theory, articulating the consistency between anti-authoritarianism and revolutionary force, and upholding the distinct anarchist notion of social change through self-organisation. This translation is a re-working of João Black's, and corrects multiple errors in that version. I thank him for his important first effort in making this available in English.

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. We are, therefore, left to reconstruct the 'Marxist theory of the state' from scattered references littered throughout Marx and Engels' collected works. My analysis investigates the shifts and contradictions in their thought, as well as the utility these contradictions served in misrepresenting the anarchist alternative.
