This is a seminar dealing with the the operation of developed pre-state political formation and the earliest states. In the first few sessions, I lecture on the ethnohistory of some prestate and early state formations, on anthropological theories of state formation, and on some archaeological examples of state emergence. The seminar will then focus on a theme selected by the participants. Any interested graduate student may take the course. Intensely interested undergrads should contact me by e-mail
