Coercion, Capital and European States, A.D. 990 - 1992 Paperback
Part of the Studies in Social Discontinuity series
In this pathbreaking work, now available in paperback, Charles Tilly challenges all previous formulations of state development in Europe.
Specifically, Tilly charges that most available explanations fail because they do not account for the great variety of kinds of states which were viable at different stages of European history, and because they assume a unilinear path of state development resolving in today's national state.
