Small States in World Politics

The Story of Small State Survival, 1648-2016

Matthias Maass

Published by Manchester University Press

The book tackles the issue of small state survival. It focuses on the state level, where it finds the key factors that determine small state survival and proliferation. The author demonstrates theoretically, quantitatively, and historically that small state survival depends first-and-foremost on the structure and particular features of the states system in which the small state finds itself.
