History: The concept of State July 19, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Culture History Mythology.

The concept of State and Statecraft are rooted in history and they have a great meaning for the present age too.

The word ‘State’ was first used by Greeks as ‘Polis’.

The Romans used the word ‘Civitas’ which also meant the state. The Tautens used the term ‘Status’ from which the modern word ‘State’ has been derived. But the credit for employing the Word ‘State’ in political science goes to Niceolo Machiavelli (1462-1527).
