This chapter looks at recent trends in the historiography of state-formation since the appearance of Charles Tilly's Coercion and Capital and European States, AD 990-1990. The impact of globalization upon scholarship is analyzed, with increasing attention to comparative studies on China and the Ottoman Empire. Another emphasis has been the study of institutions in relationship with economic growth, among others through state finances and state loans.
