Chapter Summary

This index presents the list of terms, names and concepts of state capitalism and politics. State capitalism's intellectual pedigree is lengthy but sporadically developed. Yet at least until the advent of China's Opening Up and Reform period in 1978 and the break-up of the former Soviet Union in 1991, state capitalism was oft en dismissed on the Left and the Right as a politically suspect topic. In any case, the social and intellectual history of state capitalist analysis began at least four decades before the October Revolution of 1917. Along with differences in language and locale, the lack of interest in sustained exchange among epistemic communities using state capitalist analyses is partly attributable to competing political loyalties. In other words, the potential of pluralism was squandered by parochialism.

Keywords:parochialism; pluralism; state capitalism
