The Nation State Within the Matrix of Domination
In this chapter, I argue that the analysis of transformation should incorporate both the national context and its local specific scriptures of power and resistance without losing sight of international developments in the ecology of media systems (see also Antonakis, 2018, p. 138) as well as realms considered “private”. In my distinction of the state and the regime, I take Robert Fishman’s work on South European state transitions in the 1980s as a starting point. He summarizes: “Regimes are more permanent forms of political organization than specific governments, but they are typically less permanent than the state” (Fishman, 1990, p. 428).
