Anatomy of the State is an essay by American economist Murray Rothbard. He explains what a state is and what it is not, according to his own ideological vision, and shows how it is one institution that purports to hold the right to violate all that we otherwise hold as honest and moral, and how it operates under a false cover now and always. The text binds together the cause of private-property capitalism with anarchist politics.
