The Modern State

The Modern State
Add to cart
US$ 57.95
The modern state is hugely important in our everyday lives. It takes nearly half our income in taxes. It registers our births, marriages and deaths. It educates our children and pays our pensions. It has a unique power to compel, in some cases exercising the ultimate sanction of preserving life or ordering death. Yet most of us would struggle to say exactly what the state is.
The Modern State offers a clear, comprehensive and provoking introduction to one of the most important phenomena of contemporary life. Topics covered include:
* the nation state and its historical context
* state and economy
* state and societies
* state and citizens
* international relations
* the future of the state
