    1. Certainly not a page turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat, but important nonetheless for understanding the rise of sovereign states as we understand them today. Effectively challenges our long held views about the importance of the Treaty of Westphalia and what that means for our understanding of states.

    2. This is a more nuanced take on Charles Tilly’s arguments about how the demands of large-scale war-making produced large state bureaucracies and the modern nation-state. The author begins by making an analogy to the evolutionary process, arguing that the events that led to the rise of nation state as the dominant form of political organization have to be separated into the exogenous shocks that first produced the nation state, and the subsequent selection stage that eliminated the nation-stateâ [...]

    3. A surprisingly engaging and interesting book given that it's mostly talking about late mediaeval trade, which isn't exactly a subject I'd usually read about. Well argued and in-depth analysis of the factors that can lead to systems change, and analysis of three resulting outputs, and the competition between them that led eventually to the modern sovereign state. Some analysis at the end applying this to modern systems, which personally I'd have liked more of, but apart from that it was overall e [...]

    4. Spruyt takes a view of the development of the modern state which descends from the 9th century or so, as a kind of response to increased trade with the east. His materialist view asserts that the modern state rose as a result of the increased wealth of burghers in towns. Uses France, Hanseatic League and Italian city states as examples.
