Abstract

This analysis casts the theoretical and empirical studies of welfare state development into two forms: studies adopting a broad social control perspective and those operating with a narrow view. In opting for one of these orienting conceptions, analysts often obscure the range of social control functions, from broadly integrative and ameliorative to narrowly co-opting and pacifying. A comparative analysis indicates advanced communist societies' social security programs are convergent in the risks they cover with those programs of capitalist countries. Further, Eastern European elites also exhibit a range of social controlling behaviors spanning the broad and narrow modes. A comprehensive understanding of social security functions must include these variations in political form and the range of social control mechanisms in both East and West.
