Description : Reprint of the first edition. This classic work by the important Austrian jurist is the fullest exposition of his enormously influential pure theory of law, which includes a theory of the state. It also has an extensive appendix that discusses the pure theory in comparison with the law of nature, positivism, historical natural law, metaphysical dualism and scientific-critical philosophy. "The scope of the work is truly universal. It never loses itself in vague generalities or in unconnected fragments of thought. On the contrary, precision in the formulation of details and rigorous system are characteristic features of the exposition: only a mind fully concentrated upon that logical structure can possibly follow Kelsen's penetrating analysis. Such a mind will not shrink from the effort necessary for acquainting itself with...the pure theory of law in its more general aspects, and will then pass over to the theory of the state which ends up with a carefully worked out theory of international law." Julius Kraft, American Journal of International Law 40 (1946):496.

Description : Until recently, dominant theoretical paradigms in the comparative social sciences did not highlight states as organizational structures or as potentially autonomous actors. Indeed, the term 'state' was rarely used. Current work, however, increasingly views the state as an agent which, although influenced by the society that surrounds it, also shapes social and political processes. The contributors to this volume, which includes some of the best recent interdisciplinary scholarship on states in relation to social structures, make use of theoretically engaged comparative and historical investigations to provide improved conceptualizations of states and how they operate. Each of the book's major parts presents a related set of analytical issues about modern states, which are explored in the context of a wide range of times and places, both contemporary and historical, and in developing and advanced-industrial nations. The first part examines state strategies in newly developing countries. The second part analyzes war making and state making in early modern Europe, and discusses states in relation to the post-World War II international economy. The third part pursues new insights into how states influence political cleavages and collective action. In the final chapter, the editors bring together the questions raised by the contributors and suggest tentative conclusions that emerge from an overview of all the articles. As a programmatic work that proposes new directions for the analysis of modern states, the volume will appeal to a wide range of teachers and students of political science, political economy, sociology, history, and anthropology.

Description : In its analysis of the process of state formation, this essay collection breaks new ground. Scholars from the Arab countries, Europe, and the United States present historical, economic, philosophical, and sociological perspectives on the Arab states today and offer new paradigms for understanding the region. These sixteen essays examine the roots of the contemporary Arab state system, the durability of that system, and the impact of its economic bases on its strengths and weaknesses. The influence of the various social classes and of key social groupings such as the military is also shown, and dispassionate, non-ideological views on the question of Arab integration are presented. This timely collection, interdisciplinary in its approach, brings new and insightful material to the area of Middle Eastern studies. It will be important reading for those seeking an understanding of this rapidly changing area, as well as for students of comparative political systems.

Description : In an age when areas such as health, education, and the environment are becoming more and more dependent on the state, the state demonstrates again and again that it is not able to cope. State Failure is about this failure to states in both the East and the West to make urgent economic and political decision. The problem, J&änicke argues, begins in the political sphere where politicians, who are elected to make decisions, become merely the legitimators of their government departments. The roots of the problem lie deeply embedded in the industrial structure, a structure that has passed its innovative phase and relies increasingly on public resources. Examining the failure of states in both Eastern and Western Europe, J&änicke concludes that we face a future of either stagnation or stark deindustrialization unless political means are found to solve the problems&—from environmental destruction to unemployment&— that now face us all.
