Description :
This article, through a critical review of the literature, claims that geographers have much to contribute to the analysis of the state and its role in development. An appropriate framework is a marriage of radical political economy and certain strands of neo-Weberianism. This conceptual union allows for broad theorizing of the capitalist state in the periphery. This approach can help explain the differential performances of various third-world states within the confines of the world system. Thailand and Botswana are used as comparative cases.
