A Theory of the Polity and the Bureaucracy
- 11 Downloads
What is the general theory of politics and bureaucracy in capitalism which is implicit in that empirical discussion? My response is that Marx’s analysis implies (or points at) a theory of politics which would be isomorphic with his theory of economics. He gives us the materials and the orientation to construct a theory of the structure and functioning of a system of production and circulation of ‘political resources’ similar to the theory of the structure and functioning of the capitalist economy — and, by the same token, a theory of the transformation of the system (or the transition from one regime to another) and of its effects (or ‘functions’) in the larger social system.
