The paperback (1970) edition contains 89 numbered pages, and consists of an Introduction, a Preface and the text itself:
Introduction To The Dover Edition (By Paul Avrich).
Suggestions For For Further Reading.
Preface To The First French Edition.
God And The State.
Index of Persons.
Bakunin wrote much but finished nothing. God and the State is no exception, and finishes with no obvious conclusion. Nevertheless, the original French editioned, published six years after his death in 1882, is considered a pivotal anarchist document. The text presented here, is the English edition of 1916, which was itself an updated and edited reprint of the English edition dated 1883. Professor Paul Avrich gives a history of the text in question, (through his Introduction), explaining that what is now known as 'God and the State', is actually the latter part of a much longer (but incomplete) work by Bakunin entitled ' Knuoto-Germanic Empire and the Social Revolution'.Read more ›
