Chapter 9 is a brief follow up to the previous chapter and it establishes that the longer-term history and patterns of conflict also came to bear on political borders in the modern world. The chapter illustrates that, even after controlling for controlling for other factors that could impinge upon state formation, Christian versus Muslim conflicts averaged over a given century did not impact whether or not a given geographic area fell strictly within the borders of a polity in the subsequent century. However, more intra-Christian conflicts within a region did make it more likely that it was politically fragmented later on. And Muslim-Christian conflicts had a similar fragmentary effect.
