Two other aspects of corporatism, as a general phenomenom, are in need of brief discussion. First, we must understand corporatism not only Richard A. Higgott 27 in the national context, but also in the context of the changing nature of post-colonial dependence and interdependence alluded to in the first section of this chapter. Second, and relatedly, we should note the functional rather than territorial nature of interest representation that tends to predominate under corporatism. The primacy attached to these two issues in corporatist analysis allows us to recognise that dependency relationships are clearly not the mechanical and largely spatial phenomena they were perceived to be by the early dependency literature generally, or in the specific literature on neocolonialism in Africa.

Our perceptions of the role of the state have oscillated in quite violent fashion as various 'fads' - some might call them paradigms - have risen and fallen with alarmingly short life-spans. The obvious case in point is the much-discussed rise and demise of modernisation theory over the first two decades of the post-colonial era, 4 and the much less discussed to-date but now similarly evident rise and demise of dependency theory over the last decade. 5 The interaction of these two broad competing perspectives over this period has seen the emergence of a much more sophisticated and realistic analysis of development and underdevelopment than was present in the early post-colonial period.
