Despite the increasing globalization of many aspects of social, economic and political life, the state remains the fundamental element of contemporary governance. This book provides a broad-ranging introduction to the origins, role and future of the modern state and makes its own distinct contribution to tracing out continuities and changes especially in relation to the development of state capacity.
