POL 3303 State Building and Political Development

International Studies
(3 hours)
The rise of the modern, sovereign state is one of the most important political developments in the past 500 years. The modern state has reordered the way territory is claimed; military power is organized; economic activity is regulated; and individuals conceive of their identities. To better understand the modern state, we will investigate how modern states developed initially in Western Europe and how state building trajectories have differed in Latin America, Africa, and East Asia.
