How do Soviet politicans rise to power? How are conflicting political interests brought together as policies are developed? Historians and political scientists have long been absorbed by these questions, yet none has systematically examined the crucial role played by patron-client relations. In Patronage and Politics in the USSR Professor John Willerton offers major new insights into the patronage networks that have dominated elite mobility, regime formation and governance in the Soviet Union for the past twenty-five years. Using the career details of over two thousand national and regional officials, John Willerton traces the patron-client relations underlying recruitment, mobility and policy-making.

Book Description:

In Patronage and Politics in the USSR Professor John Willerton offers major insights into the patronage networks that have dominated elite mobility, regime formation, and governance in the Soviet Union during the past twenty-five years.

Review:

"...scholarship doing what social science does best--using cautious, imaginative methods to establish as present and give some quantitative shape to phenomena which seem intuitively or experimentally to be true, but for which there is no systematic evidence....Willerton has done us real service by providing this careful documentaton of the ways in which that self-interest manifested tself in the tight confines of the Soviet system." Martha Brill Olcott, Slavic Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. How do Soviet politicians rise to power? How are national and regional regimes formed? How are conflicting political interests brought together as policies are developed in the Soviet Union? In Patronage and Politics in the USSR, first published in 1991, Professor John Willerton offers major insights into the patronage networks that have dominated elite mobility, regime formation, and governance in the Soviet Union during the past twenty-five years. Using the biographical and career details of over two thousand national leaders and regional officials in Azerbaijan and Lithuania, John Willerton traces the patron-client relations underlying recruitment, mobility, and policymaking. He explores the strategies of power consolidation and coalition building used by Soviet chief executives since 1964 as well as the institutional links and policy outcomes that have resulted from network politics. The author also assesses the manner and extent to which leaders in politically stable and less stable settings, spanning different national cultural contexts, have relied upon patronage networks to consolidate power and to govern. Finally, Professor Willerton explores how, in a period of dramatic change, patron-client networks may have given way to institutionalised interest groups and political parties.
