Introduction to Premodern Historical Systems: The Rise and Fall of States and Empires

  • Christopher Chase-Dunn University of California, Riverside

Abstract

Here are three studies of the phenomenon of rise and fall in premodern historical systems. In the modern world-system an analogous process takes the form of the rise and fall of hegemonic core powers, and the arena of contention became global in scope during the 19th century (c.e.). The studies here are of three di?erent and largely separate regional world-systems during di?erent time periods. All three focus on state formation, empire building and collapse.
