The Genesis of the European state
(pondering Martin Creveld's book «The Rise and fall of the state»)

Abstract. The article analyzes the concept of the state by the war historian Martin van Creveld. The analysis of this concept allowed the author to consider the prerequisites and formation of the state and outline the concept of the state. In the latter, he distinguishes between the concepts of the state and social practices that ensure their implementation, the organization of management and cultural explanations of the need for such an organization, which, in the author's opinion, is the meaning and content of power. In addition, the concept of the socio-cultural background of the state is introduced, which allows us to outline an explanation of the direction of development of the state and its choice of a particular political form.

Keywords: state, genesis, reconstruction, power, management, explanation, formation, crisis, concept, concept.
