9780199364954: State Building in Boom Times: Commodities and Coalitions in Latin America and Africa

State Building in Boom Times argues that commodity booms and coalitional politics are central to understanding the state building variation within and across Latin America and Africa. It shows how resource booms can trigger the provision of new public goods and institutional strengthening and thus help countries expand their state capacity. But these possibilities hinge on coalitional politics, as seen through six cases. Countries ruled by export-oriented coalitions (Argentina, Chile, and Mauritius) expanded their state capacity as a direct result of commodity booms. But countries in which exporters were politically marginalized (Colombia, Ghana, and Nigeria) missed analogous state building opportunities because ruling coalitions preyed upon export wealth, rather than promoting export interests via state building. The coalitional basis of these divergent outcomes suggests that, contrary to the prevailing belief in a resource curse, natural resource wealth does not necessarily dispose countries to low state capacity. Instead, export-oriented coalitions can harness boom times for developmental gains, even in the context of weak institutions. This finding warrants reappraising some widespread presumptions about the relationship between resource wealth and state building, as well as the public policies that are commonly proposed for developing countries to manage their natural resource wealth.

Recensione:

In this wonderful new book, Saylor takes us away from Hegelian notions of state capacity as somehow divorced from plain old politics. He is very persuasive that states do not grow in a deterministic fashion, but reflect the societal distributions of power, demands from below, and the capacity of political institutions to address these. His selection of cases is unique in its breadth and depth and provides outstanding empirical support for his theoretical claims. Experts on Africa, Latin America, public governance, and politics in general will value this important contribution. ( Miguel A. Centeno, Princeton University)

Saylor's book provides a useful counterweight to influential work on state building that has focused on extractive capacity and the need for revenue. He points to other kinds of state capacity, such as the ability to provide public goods, and argues that these capacities develop for reasons having more to do with coalitional politics than the fiscal dynamics that have long been at the center of state building theories. In documenting and explaining a wide range of capacity building outcomes during commodity booms in Latin America and Africa, his work should not only influence scholarship on the 'resource curse' but also fruitfully expand the set of dependent and independent variables in scholarship on state capacity. ( Kevin M. Morrison, University of Pittsburgh)

Saylor's book makes an important contribution to our understanding of state formation, challenging dominant perspectives on the role of war and the resource curse. His careful conceptualization and comparative historical analysis illuminates the importance of bottom-up societal dynamics, specifically the contingency of coalitional politics in boom times in six developing countries in Africa and Latin America. ( Lauren M. MacLean, Indiana University)

In State Building in Boom Times, Saylor joins a growing group of voices refuting a one-size-fits-all negative take on the politics of resource wealth. Saylor suggests instead that the nature of ruling coalitions during commodity booms drives elite decisions about investing in state capacity. He employs a nicely thought-out cross-regional comparison of a half dozen countries in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa to trace the lineages of strong states in some and weak ones in others. Saylor's is a new and smart voice in the comparative study of post-colonial state building and I welcome his entry into this ongoing scholarly debate. ( Benjamin B. Smith, University of Florida)
