With globalization, will we eventually see the end of international relations? Units (City States) City-states and sedentary empires appear in the more populous and wealthier  pre-international zones In steppe and desert regions, nomadic tribes and non-sedentary empires  appear States  are coercion-wielding organizations that are distinct from households  and kinships groups and exercise clear priority in some respects over all other  organizations within substantial territories.” At a minimum,  city states  comprised a city and its supporting agricultural  hinterland, together forming a territorial political unit capable of asserting  government and claiming autonomy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
