Tilly discusses the different historical paths of the European state in terms of the socioeconomic structure and the extraction of resources for warfare. The strong version of his theory in which these two elements are claimed to provide a necessary and sufficient explanation for the different forms of political development does not conform to the evidence at hand.

P SAUS The main thesis, which seeks to put today's states and the role of the military into the long perspective of history, remains fundamentally unchanged. Tilly seeks to establish a grand global framework to explain the overall form which European states have in common. In this he joins the urban systematizers such as D e Vries, Hohenberg and Lees, Bairoch and Joseph Konvitz since he considers cities a critical element in state-formation. As with most of Tilly's work this is sociology meeting history.
The central theme of the book is state formation. Tilly writes about the complex history of European state formation from the Middle Ages to the s — a thousand-year time span. While examining political, social, and technological change, Tilly attempts to explain the unprecedented success of the European nation-state as the dominant polity in the world,  claiming that "the origins of the modern European state lay in war and preparations for war. Tilly asks a double question in Coercion, Capital, and European States , namely: "What accounts for the great variation over time and space in the kinds of states that have prevailed in Europe since AD , and why did European states eventually converge on different variants of the national state? According to Tilly's theory, military innovation in pre-modern Europe, especially the use of gunpowder and mass armies, made war considerably more expensive.

However, as I admit in the book, this argument does not travel to states where the ruling elites are not motivated by a homogenizing imperative. Some places in the world are run by core groups consisting of apparent minimum winning coalitions,  others by elites that go at great lengths to establish national states. The European story is well known and so are the interactions between the Russians and the Europeans. Within these cases the only countries that I would expect to see nation-building policies emerging involve cases where an external power major power, regional power, neighboring state, diaspora group and so forth attempted to cultivate a fifth column within their territorial boundaries. Moreover, it would not be surprising if this phenomenon of external backing of non-core groups would be less pronounced in regions where border fixity was perceived to be really high. More importantly, what is the perception of the relevant actors across the world with respect to this question?

Tilly Charles. Instead of following a unilinear model, European states followed many different paths to the relatively uniform consolidated state that began to prevail in the 19th century. The relative concentration of coercion as represented, e. A useful simplification distinguishes "capital-intensive", "coercion-intensive", and "capitalized coercion" paths toward the consolidated state.
