讲座介绍


It has often been observed that the emergence of states in a region is typically preceded by an earlier transition to agricultural production. Using new data on the date of first state emergence within contemporary countries, Ola Olsson and his co-authors present a global scale analysis of the chronological relationship between the transition to agriculture and the subsequent emergence of states. They find statistically significant relationships between early reliance on agriculture and state age in all sub-samples. 


In this Quantitative History Webinar, Ola Olsson of University of Gothenburg will explore how their findings show that this relationship is not markedly different in cases where states were imposed from outside or when they emerged through internal origination.


Ola's co-authors: Oana Borcan (University of East Anglia) and Louis Putterman (Brown University)
