This book challenges socio-historical analyses that posit a relationship between modernity and the nation-state. It questions whether the nation-state is a distinctively European phenomenon that emerged as a result of some combination of the development of capitalism and the legacy of citizenship derived from the French Revolution. This book defines the state, differentiates it from the nation, and in so doing, defines the nation-state.
Lamont DeHaven King is Associate Professor of History at James Madison University.
