Review: "The State, edited by Richard English and Charles Townshend, tackles the problems of defining and studying the state and the role the nation state has played as the basic political unit in Europe and throughout the world." "The State offers a comprehensive survey of the whole process of state-building over the last two centuries and considers the contemporary state as well as supra-states (such as the European Union). Drawing on the current debates on secessions within the United Kingdom, this book analyses the British state today and its place in the future."--BOOK JACKET.
