New Releases. Description State Building in Boom Times argues that commodity booms and coalitional politics are central to understanding the state building variation within and across Latin America and Africa.
It shows how resource booms can trigger the provision of new public goods and institutional strengthening and thus help countries expand their state capacity. But these possibilities hinge on coalitional politics, as seen through six cases. Countries ruled by export-oriented coalitions Argentina, Chile, and Mauritius expanded their state capacity as a direct result of commodity booms.
But countries in which exporters were politically marginalized Colombia, Ghana, and Nigeria missed analogous state building opportunities because ruling coalitions preyed upon export wealth, rather than promoting export interests via state building. The coalitional basis of these divergent outcomes suggests that, contrary to the prevailing belief in a resource curse, natural resource wealth does not necessarily dispose countries to low state capacity.source
State Building in Boom Times: Commodities and Coalitions in Latin America and Africa
Instead, export-oriented coalitions can harness boom times for developmental gains, even in the context of weak institutions. This finding warrants reappraising some widespread presumptions about the relationship between resource wealth and state building, as well as the public policies that are commonly proposed for developing countries to manage their natural resource wealth.
Table of contents Acknowledgments ; 1. Review quote In State Building in Boom Times, Saylor joins a growing group of voices refuting a one-size-fits-all negative take on the politics of resource wealth.

Saylor suggests instead that the nature of ruling coalitions during commodity booms drives elite decisions about investing in state capacity. He employs a nicely thought-out cross-regional comparison of a half dozen countries in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa to trace the lineages of strong states in some and weak ones in others. Saylor's is a new and smart voice in the comparative study of post-colonial state building and I welcome his entry into this ongoing scholarly debate.
