Among Empires by Charles S. Maier

Book Description

Contemporary America, with its unparalleled armaments and ambition, seems to many commentators a new empire. Others angrily reject the designation. What stakes would being an empire have for our identity at home and our role abroad? A pre-eminent American historian addresses these issues in light of the history of empires since antiquity. This elegantly written book examines the structure and impact of these mega-states and asks whether the United States shares their traits and behaviour.

Once Within Borders by Charles S. Maier Once Within Borders, Hardback (October 2016)

At a time when the technologies of globalization are eroding barriers to communication, transportation, and trade, Charles Maier explores the fitful evolution of territories politically bounded regions whose borders define the jurisdiction of laws and the movement of peoples as a worldwide practice of human societies.

Recasting Bourgeois Europe by Charles S. Maier Recasting Bourgeois Europe, Paperback (November 2015)

"One of Princeton University Press's Notable Centenary Titles"--Page 4 of cover.

Leviathan 2.0 by Charles S. Maier Leviathan 2.0, Paperback (April 2014)

Thomas Hobbes laid the theoretical groundwork of the nation-state in Leviathan, his tough-minded 1651 treatise. Charles Maier's Leviathan 2.0 updates this classic to explain how modern statehood took shape between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, before it unraveled into the political uncertainty that persists today.

Shock of the Global by Charles S. Maier Shock of the Global, Paperback (September 2011)

From the vantage point of the United States or Western Europe, the 1970s was a time of troubles: economic 'stagflation,' political scandal, and global turmoil. This title examines the large-scale structural upheaval of the 1970s by transcending the standard frameworks of national borders and superpower relations.
