Abstract:This essay is focused upon states and upon the social processes which are derived from states' formalities of function. Its concerns are connections which govern processes, the connections between the institutionalization of power and the conflicting constituencies of class, community, and nation; between the exercise of force and the rule of law; between modes of domination and modes of production. Sections: Preface - A periodization of paradigms - The dimension of states - Kingdoms - Colonies - States - Conclusion. Notes, ref.
