      1. In this short text (first published in French in 1991), Badiou considers the collapse of the socialist regimes in 1989 and analyzes what impact this collapse has on the concept of the ‘state,’ especially in terms of its relationship to a future radical politics. See in particular the new foreword by Badiou.
