Sample text

From this perspective, it would be artificial to isolate the political system from other social relations, for ‘social life is interdependent’. These observations about the political system serve as a useful segue into sociological analyses of the state that deal explicitly with the interface between state and society. As an illustrative example, we shall focus on Gianfranco Poggi’s The Development of the Modern State (1978), very much a forgotten contribution to the socio-historical theorising of the state.

Of course there are detractors. There are those analysts who prefer to think less of abstractions like society than of individual discrete acts and behaviours that form the social whole. Still, society, or social processes, form an essential part of the social sciences, especially state theory. The interface between the state and society has featured prominently in postwar reflections on the state. For all its executive authority and monopoly over coercive apparatuses, can we really think of the state as truly independent and autonomous?

There are quantitative consequences: the increased share of gross domestic product by the state; the growth in the number of state employees; and the proliferation of public agencies. Of greater interest are the qualitative changes resulting from the closer interface between state and society, particularly the effects on the legislative process and the standing of parliament. uk McGraw Hill - 152mm x 229mm - Fonts: Caslon, Fruitger, Gill Sans JOBNAME: SM − MSEL PAGE: 20 SESS: 13 OUTPUT: Wed Jul 11 09:59:49 2007 SUM: 5901C501 /production/mcgraw−hill/booksxml/marinetto/chapters 20 SOCIAL THEORY, THE STATE AND MODERN SOCIETY qualitative shifts, there is a single, overwhelming message from Poggi.
