This work is an analysis of Giddens's thinking on nation-state. It is a discussion of correlation between state, society and modernity. Modernity, in his analysis on nation-state, is placed as the important stand point for the understanding. Modernity itself has four institutional dimensions: heightened surveillance, capitalistic enterprise, industrial production and consolidation of centralized control of the means of violence. None is wholly reducible to any of the others. Two key questions will be answered by this study. First, what is modernity? How does it work?

The most important thing, it is intended to analyse relationship between state, society and modernity in the development of nation-state.
