Multiethnic states are the historical norm. Thus, those who worry about “foreign contamination” rail against history. Preoccupation with “nation-building” is a waste of time. The recent rise of “multiculturalism” is not so much a fad, as a return to normalcy. One source of multicultural composition of states, and especially world-systems, is their general tendency to pulsate and expand, and thus incorporate new areas and new peoples. World-System Expansion, Incorporation, and Frontiers Discussion of absorption of peoples and regions into the world-system, what I and others have called “incorporation” (Hall 1986, 1987, 1989; Hopkins et al.
The converse is equally valid. Indeed, if there is a “system” to the world-system, even if it is a “ramshackle affair” (Stinchcombe 1982), its processes and dynamics should be manifested, in some form, everywhere in the system, even on its far peripheries. Robert Pirsig made the same point when commenting on his traveling companions’ reticence to become involved in the technology of motorcycle maintenance: The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower (Pirsig 1974:26).
Rather, we have had state-owned capitalist states (see Chase-Dunn [1982, 1992] for more detailed discussion of this topic). The second type of world-system grew out of the sedentary world-systems that formed some 10,000 years ago during the Neolithic revolution. In this view, states are a 5,000-year-old invention which subverted the rule of kinship—although not entirely—and replaced it with coercive political power. The invention of states, and of state-based world-systems, allowed much greater accumulation of capital than heretofore had been possible.
