Cascoly Books - Shield of Achilles


The Shield of Achilles - War, Peace and the Course of History - Philip Bobbitt

An incredible synthesis of the evolution of the State over the last 500 years. Solid historical argument in support of a radical idea about the replacement of the nation state by the market state.


Another solid read, Bobbitt traces the evolution of various forms of government from Princely and Kingly territories to the modern 'market state' . In Wolf Hall, Hillary Mantel shows how Thomas masterminds the transition of England from a princely state to a nation state. Combining military history, diplomacy and international law, Bobbitt displays how modern states developed during a series of 'long wars' followed by international treaties and consolidations. .
