The Genesis of the State

Synopsis

How did the state originate and what is the source of its authority? This is the focus of Martin Sicker's latest volume. This work examines several major approaches to the question of genesis and political authority which are reflected in the works of western and non-western thinkers throughout the ages. Searching for greater insight into the true nature of the state, Sicker studies a range of approaches including the divine, patriarchal, organic, force, and consent theories. He concludes with a serviceable contemporary answer.
