Is the nation state dying? Is world government possible? Can government control the economy? 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 new edition of this well-established and highly regarded textbook continues to provide the clearest and most comprehensive introduction to the modern state. It examines the state from its historical origins at the birth of modernity to its current jeopardized position in the globalized politics of the 21st century. Subjects covered include: the nation-state in its historical context state and economy states and societies states and citizens states within the international system 'rogue' and failed states Thoroughly updated and revised with two new chapters, students will continue to find The Modern State a provocative introduction to one of the most important phenomena of contemporary life.
