Résumé
EN
The question of the state remains central in the social sciences. The famous call for 'bringing the state back in' in the 1980s (Evans, Rueschemeyer and Skocpol, eds 1985) has been remarkably successful; it does not need repeating. Nor need we claim 'new' debates of the state as such. In this chapter we underline enduring aspects of state development, structure and significance for modern political systems and economies, and we rehearse some important developments in recent scholarly research on this key topic. Since research-both empirical and theoretical-on the state is abundant, our discussion here cannot claim to be exhaustive but it does convey a sense of the salient debates and identifies ways in which scholarly argument about the state is developing. That the state remains and will remain fundamental to political sociology, comparative politics, legal studies, political economy, public policy and international relations is not in doubt.
