  • Title:
    Capital, Coercion, and Postcommunist States
  • Author: Gerald M. Easter Author
  • Description: The postcommunist transitions produced two very different types of states. The 'contractual' state is associated with the countries of Eastern Europe, which moved toward democratic regimes, consensual relations with society, and clear boundaries between political power and economic wealth. The 'predatory' state is associated with the successors to the USSR, which instead developed authoritarian regimes, coercive relations with society, and poorly defined boundaries between the political and economic realms. This book shows how the cumulative result of the many battles between state coercion and societal capital over taxation gave rise to these distinctive transition outcomes.
