Synopsis

Luis Roniger offers a comprehensive and systematic discussion of the influence of clientelism and clientelistic relationships in the structure of social and political life in Mexico and Brazil. The author describes, analyzes, and compares clientelisitc arrangements not only in terms of economic development and socila differentiation, but as a strategy of interaction and control over economic and political markets shaped both by structural factors and cultural patterns. Contrary to some theorists who argue that clientelism disappears following processes of industrialization and modernization, Roniger sees clientelistic networks as both a distinct institutional pattern and a major and continuing model of structuring social exchange.
