An outstanding collection of essays on the deepening of economic globalization and its impact on nationalism, state formation, and stability in the international system. -- T. V. Paul, McGill University For 500 years, as empires fell and fiefdoms vanished, the nation-state has proven an evolutionary winner-its number soaring from 50 to 200 since World War II. Will globalization and integration, nuclear weapons and terrorism, finally do it in? For some astute and surprising answers, read this excellent collection. -- Josef Joffe, publisher-editor, Die Zeit; Abramowitz Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University This exceptionally well-researched collection of essays is the outcome of the UCLA-Harvard project on the likely creation of new states in the era of globalization. Rosecrance and Stein do an excellent job in summarizing the findings of three major conferences on the impact of globalization on the international system of states. Highly recommended. CHOICE Richard Rosecrance and Arthur Stein deal with one of the most important and understudied issues in global politics today-the question of state fragmentation and state formation. The chapters in this volume provide fresh thinking on why states exist and how they are defined. -- Francis Fukuyama, Johns Hopkins University, author of The End of History and the Last Man
