From the Back Cover:

People/States/Territories examines the role of statepersonnel in shaping, and being shaped by, state organizations andterritories. The text develops a conceptual understanding of thestate as a continually emerging and contingent territorialorganization, which is reproduced, transformed, and contested bystate personnel. Rhys Jones demonstrates how the iterativepractices of state actors may give meaning and permanence to– or, alternatively, may question and transform – thestate apparatus. In addition, Jones highlights how thestate’s territory is continuously negotiated and translatedby those individuals working within this state apparatus, and heillustrates how the identities and practices of state personnelhave been influenced by the organizational and territorial networksof power that characterize the state.People/States/Territories views the state, along with theprocess of state transformation, as the product of a continual– yet temporally specific – interplay between statepersonnel, state organizations, and state territories.

Featuring accessible, relevant case studies of four key periodsin the transformation of the state within Britain, this bookfocuses specifically on: the medieval process of state formation inWessex, north-west Scotland, and north Wales; the consolidation ofstate organizations that took place in England and Wales during theearly modern period; the peopling of a state- andterritorially-organized process of government inspection in thenineteenth century in the north of England; and the territorial,organizational and peopled contexts for the current process ofdevolution being experienced in the UK.

About the Author:

Rhys Jones is a Senior Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, whose research interests lie in the political geographies of state transformation. His work has appeared in a number of papers published in international social science journals.
