The Modern Phenomena of the Nation-State

“Perhaps the most characteristic feature of modern history, one which impinges upon virtually every area of life, has been the development of the nation-state. So pervasive is its influence, so “normal” do its vast powers seem, that to read a document that seeks to limit severely the scope of those powers—even so recent a one as the Constitution of the United States—evokes a sense of great antiquity and strangeness.” (Herbert Schlossberg, Idols for Destruction, p. 177).
