John Stephens and others: The Oxford Handbook of Transformations of the State

This introduction sets the stage for the Handbook’s presentation of the latest social science knowledge about the state and its transformations. It develops an analytical framework that helps identify and grasp the diversity of state transformations. Transformations of the state differ in their causes and driving forces, the elements of the state that are affected, and the extent and intensity of change. Our analytical framework includes categories for the analysis of the determinants of state transformation, the dimensions of state transformations, and the intensity and extent of state transformations. []
