I too was surprised to see it lacked a contents and index page (this is not an issue with the four other 'Dover Books on Western Philosophy' I have purchased), and I can understand this is not an ideal version for a detailed study of the work, but as for the problem of the contents:
Analytic of Pure Practical Reason
Chapter 1 - p. 17
Chapter 2 - p. 60
Chapter 3 - p. 76
Dialectic of Pure Practical Reason
Chapter 1 - p. 114
Chapter 2 - p. 118
Methodology of Pure Practical Reason - p. 159
The book itself is also pretty good, as no doubt you are aware. Much more readable than Critique of Pure Reason, especially if you are more interested in ethics than epistemology. Though if that is the case you should read the groundwork first, for a ... well a groundwork.
I subsequently bought a translation by Pluhar, published by Hackett, which has a table of contents and a comprehensive index; it has been much more useful to me in my studies.
It appears Kant found this 'outworking' of the principles he evolved in the first Critique an enjoyment of the spoils of all his hard work. He even felt that the first two Critiques beautifully substantiated each other: what was impossible for speculative reason was amazingly available to practical reason: there are things we cannot know but must be presupposed to give ultimate value to the things we do. Practical Reason completes Pure Reason.
