The Nation-state and Global Order: A Historical Introduction to Contemporary Politics

Front Cover
Rejecting models of linear development, Opello and Rosow (both in political science, State U. of New York-Oswego) fuse governing practices, technological change, political economy, language, and culture in an analysis of the formation of specific forms of the state: from imperial Rome, to the present "state of states," and future challenges. Includes several basic maps of early political divisions and a glossary of terms from arquebus, a primitive firearm, to virtus, the Roman political ideal of manliness based on great military deeds. Paper edition (unseen), $19.95. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
