Political communities across the world are facing tremendous challenges in terms of trying to create An appropriate and cooperative environment for civic existence. Despite the current trend in international relations toward regional integration and globalisation, the idea of properly understanding how states come together, how they build themselves up, and what makes them disintegrate is relevant. In Global Trends in State Formation, author Godknows Boladei Igali offers broad insight into the emergence of the modern state system, the disintegration of states, and suggestions that will bring stability and peaceful coexistence within nations. Igali, with more than thirty years of experience in public service in Nigeria, presents a philosophical inquiry and a historical survey into the origins of the various political formations such as nations, nation-states, states, societies, from the perspective of Western political and religious thought as inspired by the state of the world in the late twentieth century as it moved toward the twenty-first century.
