No concept is more central to political discourse and political analysis than that of the state. The state has meant, and continues to mean, a great variety of different things to different authors and in different social science traditions. This unit explores the development of the modern state and appraises a range of state theoretical perspectives including pluralism, elitism, Marxism, public choice, institutionalism, feminism and green theory.
