Mobilization and the Quality of
We now come back to the classification of political cultures into constitutional and elitist, which was established for developed countries in chapter 3. Does such a classification apply also to the developmental situations we have just been examining, and if so how? Can we relate stalactite mobilization in any general and systematic way to these two types of social culture? 1 An attempt is made in this chapter to isolate the factors which indicate the nature of emerging political cultures in situations of development. Then possible future developments are discussed under four headings: 1. The relationship between forms of mobilization, patterns of culture and social change. 2. The relationship of form, direction and structure of mobilization with legitimacy. 3. The instrumentality of different forms of mobilization for economic growth. 4. The chances of autonomous (as opposed to induced) democratization in the form of choice-accommodation.____________________
