Martin van Creveld - The Rise and Decline of the State ().pdfWhen people move away from villages, jobs, schools, shops and other facilities also disappear. The government needs to tackle the causes and effects of population decline, for instance by cutting down on the number of new homes being built. The areas with the highest rates of population decline are Zeeland Flanders, southern Limburg and northern and eastern Groningen. In certain other parts of the country, population decline is anticipated but has not yet actually started. When young people move to bigger towns and cities, the average age of the population in the place they leave behind automatically goes up.
The Rise and Decline of Nations and Civilizations
The days before and the days after the first World War are separated not like the end of an old and the beginning of a new period, but like the day before and the day after an explosion. Yet this figure of speech is as inaccurate as are all others, because the quiet of sorrow which settles down after a catastrophe has never come to pass. The first explosion seems to have touched off a chain reaction in which we have been caught ever since and which nobody seems to be able to stop.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This book explores how a wide range of countries attempt to cope with the challenges of globalization. While the internalization of globalization proceeds in significantly different ways, there is a broad process of convergence taking place around the politics of neoliberalism and a more market-oriented version of capitalism. The book examines how distinct social structures, political cultures, patterns of party and interest group politics, classes, public policies, liberal democratic and authoritarian institutions, and the discourses that frame them, are being reshaped by political actors.

By special arrangement with the publisher Cambridge University Press , the Mises Institute is very pleased to make available this hugely important work by the Israeli historian Martin van Creveld. The thesis is that the nation state as we've known it is a modern invention and a thorough failure, ever more costly and intrusive and unworkable. It is in the process of being supplanted by other institutions less formal and hence more functional to serve the member's goals. On the plus side, we see the emergence of a decentralized but global market order and the emergence of micro-political communities. On the negative side, there is the development of guerilla armies that act secretively and elude defeat in conventional military terms. The nation state, once the leviathan bestriding the global and ruling all before it, is being reduced in its size because it is being outsmarted and outrun.
