    A complex society is a concept that is shared by a range of disciplines including anthropology, archaeology, history and sociology to describe a stage of social formation. The concept was formulated by scholars attempting to understand how modern states emerged, specifically the transition from small kin-based societies to large hierarchically structured societies. By bringing together the too-often separated worlds of social movement theorists and community organizers., Students, residents and community organizers will benefit from the most detailed comparison of contrasting organizing models ever written., This Book Stimulates Readers to Think about These Complex Issues.
