This book offers a political theory combining elements from the Marxist and liberal traditions. It presents the reader with a disturbing view of the contemporary state as at war with itself. This internal conflict is no accident but stems from the state's having the double task of spurring on the economy and protecting the welfare and rights of all its citizens. Such conflict does not end at national boundaries but extends through the system of any imperial state. This perspective illuminates the fractures and instability within the imperial system. This book will be of particular interest to political scientists, political philosophers, and those engaged in policy studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an important, ambitious book. Rather than continuing the debate about what Marx thought about justice or the state, Fisk has set out to construct a materialist theory of each, and their interrelation...He draws on concrete historical and contemporary experience to a degree rare among philosophers...Fisk is bold, unconventional, provocative. Few readers will agree with everything here; fewer still will come away without new ideas buzzing in the brain." David Schweickart, Radical Philosophy Review of Books
"The State and Justice demonstrates the continuing vitality and fruitfulness of Marxist approaches to social and political philosophy. It is lucidly written and replete with lively historical examples. It is essential reading for anyone interested in justice, the state, or theory of social explanation; the standard upper-division or graduate course on justice should henceforth feature Rawls, Nozick, and Fisk." The Philosophical Review
