I summarize here recent work on the physical conditions in blazar jets including the comparison between emission regions at subparsec scales (1016−17 cm) and at very large scales (1022−24 cm) recently detected in X-rays by Chandra. The jet properties at both scales together with those of the presumed associated accretion disk (1014−15 cm) suggest the possibility of a unified scenario for the origin and propagation of jets in strong radio sources.
