This is the problem he addresses. After subjecting definitions of the state to a rigorous analysis, he concludes that "the state, as a constitutional concept, is composed of elements different from those which make up the concept of the state in international law" (10). The rest of the book explores the significance of this distinction and its utility for political theory.
