  1. 1. The Money of Monarchs : The Importance of Non-Tax Revenue for Autocratic Rule in Early Modern Sweden

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Klas Nilsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; revenue; autocracy; regime change; fiscal sociology; public finance; state-building; Sweden; Early Modern Europe; Rentier State; royal power; statsinkomster; statsstyre; politisk utveckling; Rentier State; Rentierism; skattesystem; tidigmodern statsbildning; Sverige; europeisk historia;

    Abstract : According to a venerable argument about the formation of political regimes in historical Europe, taxation goes hand in hand with representation, as financial needs forced rulers to trade rights for revenue. In this dissertation I explore the reverse assumption, asking whether it is the case that non-taxation went hand in hand with non-representation? I argue that early modern rulers who had access to what I conceptualize as ‘proprietary revenue’—including profits from landownership, natural resource extraction, state-owned enterprise, and colonial plunder—could use such revenue to concentrate political authority in their own hands and rule as autocrats.

  3. 3. Application Oriented Programming and Control of Industrial Robots

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Klas Nilsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1992]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Efficient use of industrial robots requires a strong interplay between user level commands, the motion control system, and external equipment. It should also be possible for an experienced application engineer to tailor the motion control to a specific application in a convenient way, instead of deficient utilization of the device or tricky user programming which is often the case today.
