«‘This is a timely book that takes a fresh look at an old concept: the state! The original approach chosen by Thomas Vesting consists in a new theory of the state that is focused on its cognitive and cultural meaning. It builds a bridge between legal and political sciences and sheds new light on the knowledge base of both state and society. It rewrites the history of the state and reconfigures the conception of the state of the network society.’»
