At some points in history, questions about how a nation is created or reshaped might
be considered academic. At other times however including those we are living through
now the questions acquire far more urgency.

cooperation with it? What are the social foundations of political turbulence, or the
international implications of internal policies and events?

represented, including technologies of repression, resistance, law, taxation, and

Anyone who understands the answers to these and similar questions will have a
distinct advantage in interpreting the news stories about nation building that are
already unfolding on an almost daily basis, and which promise to continue in the
coming months and years.
