Hoffman, P.T.: Why Did Europe Conquer the World? (eBook and Hardcover).
Between 1492 and 1914, Europeans conquered 84% of the globe. But why did Europe rise to the top, when for centuries the Chinese, Japanese, Ottomans, and South Asians were far more advanced? Why didn’t these powers establish global dominance? ...distinguished economic historian Hoffman demonstrates that conventional explanations— eg geography, epidemic disease, and the Industrial Revolution—fail to provide answers. Arguing instead for the pivotal role of economic and political history, Hoffman shows that if variables had been at all different, Europe would not have achieved critical military innovations, and another power could have become master of the world. In vivid detail, he sheds light on the two millennia of economic, political, and historical changes that set European states on a distinctive path of development and military rivalry. Compared to their counterparts in China, Japan, South Asia, and the Middle East, European leaders—whether chiefs, lords, kings, emperors, or prime ministers—had radically different incentives, which drove them to make war. These incentives, which Hoffman explores using an economic model of political costs and financial resources, resulted in astonishingly rapid growth in Europe’s military sector from the Middle Ages on, and produced an insurmountable lead in gunpowder technology. The consequences determined which states established colonial empires or ran the slave trade, and even which economies were the first to industrialize. -- Professor of Business Economics and professor of history at CalTech.

Charles Tilly - Contentious Choices [overview of Special Issue: Current Routes to the Study of Contentious Politics and Social Change] | JSTOR: Theory and Society, Vol. 33, No. 3/4 (Jun. - Aug., 2004), pp. 473-481
Articles in this special issue address two choices faced by all analysts of contentious politics: 1) which features of political processes the analysts single out for description and explanation and 2) what sorts of conceptualizations and explanations of those processes they propose. On the first point, the articles split among a) variation and change in actors' strategies as well as consequences of those strategies, b) longer-term transformations of political context and consequences, c) grounding of contention in local circumstances. On the second, they choose among a) very general explanatory frameworks, b) particular causal mechanisms that produce similar effects across a wide variety of political circumstances, and c) explanation by means of careful attachment of episodes to local and regional settings. The articles therefore illustrate broad challenges in current studies of political contention. -- a late methodological essay on approaches to contentious politics and mechanisms, explanation, causation, generalizations etc in Tilly's career -- downloaded pdf to Note

Neil Gross - Charles Tilly and American Pragmatism | JSTOR: The American Sociologist, Vol. 41, No. 4 (December 2010), pp. 337-357
Charles Tilly's work on repertoires of contention and social mechanisms was pathbreaking. In this article, I argue that his understanding of both concepts overlaps with social-theoretical work informed by the philosophical tradition of classical American pragmatism. There is no evidence that Tilly was influenced by pragmatism, but I argue that the overlap is substantial enough that large portions of his oeuvre can serve as illustrations of the explanatory power of pragmatist social science—and that Tilly's theorization of mechanisms in particular would have been even stronger had he engaged pragmatism directly. -- downloaded pdf to Note

Kim Voss - Enduring Legacy? Charles Tilly and "Durable Inequality" | JSTOR: The American Sociologist, Vol. 41, No. 4 (December 2010), pp. 368-374
This article assesses Charles Tilly's Durable Inequality and traces its influence. In writing Durable Inequality, Tilly sought to shift the research agenda of stratification scholars. But the book's initial impact was disappointing. In recent years, however, its influence has grown, suggesting a more enduring legacy. -- interesting shift in stratification research -- didn't download

Rogers Brubaker - Charles Tilly as a Theorist of Nationalism | JSTOR: The American Sociologist, Vol. 41, No. 4 (December 2010), pp. 375-381
This paper considers Charles Tilly as an important but underappreciated theorist of nationalism. Tilly's theory of nationalism emerged from the "bellicist" strand of his earlier work on state-formation and later incorporated a concern with performance, stories, and cultural modeling. Yet despite the turn to culture in Tilly's later work, his theory of nationalism remained state-centered, materialist, and instrumentalist— a source of both its power and its limitations. -- downloaded pdf to Note

Charles Tilly - The Blame Game | JSTOR: The American Sociologist, Vol. 41, No. 4 (December 2010), pp. 382-389
We constantly assess and attribute blame in daily life and more momentously, in public politics. Blame is based on a simple cause-and-effect logic that reasons backwards from outcomes and their consequences to agents and their responsibility. Public debates over the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington and over the Iraq war illustrate the processes of assigning and deflecting blame, and the varied logics actors appeal to in these processes. -- didn't download

Charles Tilly - Another View of Conventions | JSTOR: The American Sociologist, Vol. 41, No. 4 (December 2010), pp. 390-399
Originally published in Italian 2006 - in English in Tilly memorial issue. Didn't download -- Conventions consist of conventionally accepted reasons for dereliction, deviation, distinction, or good fortune. Their use facilitates coordination of interpersonal effort through appeal to shared understandings that emerge from the push and pull of social interaction, but then constrain further rounds of that interaction. The use of conventions differs from three other well defined and widely used forms of reason giving: codes, technical accounts, and stories. All four do relational work, but conventions operate most easily and effectively when participants in social relations are simply confirming the character of those relations rather than establishing them anew, contesting them, terminating them, or transforming them. In those cases, participants are more likely to employ codes, technical accounts, or stories.

Zum Hofstaat Tillys, I: Personalia | dk-blog
Michael Kaiser versucht zu rekonstruieren, wer eigentlich mit dem Heerführer der Katholischen Liga, Tilly, im Dreißigjährigen Krieg unterwegs war - und stößt erstaunlich schnell auf Probleme ...
Tilly führte Krieg für den Kaiser und die Katholische Liga. Nur er allein? Oder hatte er nicht wenigstens einen Koch bei sich? Wir wissen es gar nicht so genau, wollen es ihm aber gerne gönnen. Wer das engere Umfeld des Generalleutnants bildete, dazu wird man Aufschluß aus einer Aufstellung des sog. „Hofstaats“ erwarten können, der im November 1623 im Gebiet um Fulda Quartier nahm.
