Abstract

Relating state, ethnicity, and globalization throughout history raises the question of the durability of concepts capable of transcending historical time in order to produce appropriate explanatory models. The article, which offers a critical commentary on the articles by Fred Riggs, Thomas Hall, Jonathan Friedman, and Majid Tehranian, shows the strength of long term (longue durée) historical models to explain what appears "new" or a "return" to nationalism. The author discusses the position taken by the four authors concerning ethnic conflicts and immigration and concludes with the observation that natural history is an illusion. /// La question des relations entre Etat, ethnicité, et système monde à travers l'histoire pose la question de la pérennité des concepts et de leur capacité à transcender l'histoire pour en donner un modèle d'explication. L'auteur analyse la pertinence et les limites d'articles de Fred Riggs, Thomas Hall, Jonathan Friedman, et Majid Tehranian. Il montre la force de la problématique de la longue durée au regard des approaches habituelles sur la "nouveauté" ou sur le "retour" du nationalisme. Il discute les positions des auteurs sur les conflits ehtniques et sur l'analyse de l'immigration. Il revient in fine sur l'illusion de l'histoire naturelle.
