B. Building a Model of Incorporation To understand the expansion of the modern “state” system we examine the actual process of this expansion, as reflected in the incorporation of new Broadening and Deepening ● 25 regions, polities, and cultures. Regarding incorporation,“[v]ast disruptions of social, economic and political processes accompany the expansion of states, whether the expansion is based on accumulation of capital or plunder” (Hall 1986:397–398). ” Indeed, the very conception of incorporation is problematic: “(a) with respect to incorporating state or system: (b) with respect to types of incorporated groups: (c) with respect to both timing and degree of incorporation: and (d) with respect to a variety of factors that can affect the process” (Hall 1986:398; also 1999c, 2000b, 2009).

It is argued that “prestige-goods economies constitute systemic networks because the ability of local leaders to monopolize the supply of these goods is often an important source of stability and change in local power structures” (Chase-Dunn and Hall 1993:855). It is not unreasonable to presume that these networks could then have important systemic effects. 1.

This means that important processes have been neglected in the discussion of world-systems literature and other works concerned with historical state-system expansion, which this work seeks to rectify. Beyond addressing concerns specifically related to world-systems theory, I seek to reintroduce WSA into the discussion of IR theory. , Waltz’s neorealism and Bull’s international society).
