‘State-in-society’-in-social sciences

“Too often, especially in the new social science literature reviving the states as a major actor and unit of analysis, the state has appeared as a given–autonomous, impenetrable, the ultimate independent variable.”

(Migdal 1988, 180)

“Social control is the currency over which organizations in an environment of conflict battle one another.”

(Migdal 1988, 32)
