Paul Thomas traces the process by which Marxs theory of the state as the instrument of the capitalist ruling class became transformed into communist dogma under the auspices of Lenin and other Marxist stalwarts. He argues that Marxs writings still have something to teach us and should not be pulled down with the monoliths and mausoleums of communism. The book continues the work of Western Marxist thinkers such as Antonio Gramsci and Nicos Poulantzas who came to understand the modern state in terms different from the rightly-discredited ruling class theory of the state associated with Leninism.

Such Western Marxist theorists - more careful and nuanced readers of Marx than their powerfully placed antagonists - formulated a theory of what Thomas calls alien politics.
