The University of Bremen's Transformations of the State Collaborative Research Centre (TranState) served as the institutional, intellectual, and administrative home for the preparation of this Handbook. Funded by the Deutsche For¬schungs¬gemeinschaft (German Research Founda¬tion), TranState is made up of about a hundred resear¬chers from all disciplines of the social sciences and all stages of career development.

TranState defines the multifaceted modern state in four intersecting dimensions: resources, or control of the use of force and revenues; law, or jurisdiction and the courts; legitimacy, or the acceptance of political rule by the populace; welfare, or the facilitation of economic growth and social equality. This Handbook focuses on the welfare dimension. Oxford University Press has now asked TranState to serve as home base for another book in the Handbook series, this time taking a wide‐angle, multidimensional view of the state and how it has developed under globalization.
