Peoples, towns and states.: Structural power resources and state-power in the Scando-Baltic region (1500-1820)
2007 (English)Chapter in book (Other academic)
The article is an attempt at quantitative analysis of the structural power resources of five Scando-Baltic states (Russia, Prussia, Poland, Denmark, Sweden) c. 1500-1800. Population numbers and urbanisation levels are used as power indicators, and the results are tested against general theoretical statements of some macro sociologists and historians (Wallerstein, Kennedy, Tilly). The results are presented in constructed power graphs, intending to illustrate the power development of the studied states.
