Why Do States Fragment and Break Apart?
An Historical Sociology of Eight Cases (Eighteenth to the Twentieth Century)eBook - 2010
This comparative analysis demonstrates how state fragmentation results from a causal chain of geopolitical strains, resource shortfalls, intra-elite conflict, and the deficiency of a central government?s coercive capability to hold the society together. The emergence process of new sovereign states is also discussed.
