Over the years Charles Tilly has had an indelible influence on a remarkable number of key questions in social sciences and history. In the fields of social change, states and institutions, urbanization, and historical sociology, his seminal work has spawned whole new lines of inquiry and research. In one volume, this book offers the best and most influential of Tilly's work, with a new introduction by the author that relates his analyses to a wide body of scholarship. The book also includes a review and critique by Arthur L. Stinchcombe.

Of all living sociologists, Charles Tilly is almost certainly the one most respected by historians and political scientists. He always compares, he invariably asks and answers important questions, he knows the past as a historian, and he never forgets that the present and future are rooted in it.--Eric J. Hobsbawm
