PLCP 4060 - State-Emergence and State-Building

The course examines the historical foundations of modern theories in social science on state-building. Most assumptions in the contemporary literature are explicitly or implicitly predicated on an understanding of the historical experience of the west. This understanding is often deeply flawed, leading to erroneous models and flawed assumptions in the scholarship on political development.
