Instead of the prevailing view that postcolonial states are condemned to their colonial design, and that authoritarian rule favors economic development, my study shows that non-Western state formation is non-linear and follows a cyclical pattern between predation and developmentalism, the excesses of which could be moderated.
I am grateful to Julia Adams, Gary Hamilton, Stephen Hanson, John R. Hall, Randall Collins, Richard Lachmann, and Kerry Ward for their incisive comments and criticisms.
