Annäherungen an die Bedeutung personaler Verflechtungen in Politik und Wirtschaft des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts
It is in keeping with the lessons everyday life experience teaches us that even in modern, highly complex societies, securing one´s personal means of existence, the achievement of social status and the implementation of political goals cannot be gained solely by individual integrity and efficiency. Personal relationships of protection and loyalty, clandestine as well as acted out in the open, are functioning globally as accepted mechanisms for regulating social behaviour. The contributions collected in this volume aim to test the analysis of patronage relations, which has already proven fruitful for early modern occidental societies, on a case-by-case basis in the context of modern history. This yields a methodologically significant conclusion: In the investigation of relations of formalization, the focus must not be primarily directed at abstract regulative aspects, but must first of all take into account the internal sensitivities, scope, desires and strategies of the individuals or social groups involved.
