POSC 379 - The Development of the Modern State

Though the state is now the standard form of political organization, this was not always the case.

This course examines the emergence of the modern state as the predominant form of political organization. It explores various arguments for state sovereignty and examines several challenges to it as well. Finally, it considers the state of the state in today’s globalized world.
