9781555873400: Democracy, Clientelism, and Civil Society

Determining the foundations and contradictory implications of the liberalisation, democratisation, and sociopolitical restructuring occuring today on an almost global scale constitutes a major challenge for contemporary social science. The central objective of this book is to analyse the impact and evolution of various forms of clientelism and patronage throughout contemporary processes of participation and democratisation. The authors dissent from earlier approaches in their shared conviction that, first, clientelism should not be expected to disappear as a necessary corollary of political change and development; yet, second, the changing structure of the contemporary sociopolitical arena has a dynamic effect on it. By linking micro and macro levels of analysis, they contribute critical research perspectives on the changing nature of the political arena, shifting attention to the study of regime instability and vulnerability.
