Politische Patronage findet sich in nahezu allen Gesellschaften. Patronage ist dabei nicht nur ein politisches Instrument, sondern eine Kulturform mit eigenen Codes und Werten. Politische Bedeutung entfaltet Patronage vor allem bei der Integration von Gesellschaften und politischen Systemen. Gleichwohl steht sie stets unter kritischer Beobachtung und bedarf der Legitimation. Formuliert wird die Kritik an der Patronage dabei haufig als Korruptionskritik. Integration, Legitimation, Korruption - diese drei miteinander verflochtenen Dimensionen der Patronage werden an Beispielen von der Fruhneuzeit bis ins fruhe 20. Jahrhundert behandelt. Der international ausgerichtete Band stellt damit auch die sich wandelnden Bedingungen fur Patronage zwischen vormodernen und modernen Gesellschaften dar.
Political patronage is an almost universal phenomenon. It is not just a tool which actors use to achieve certain objectives but a way of life with its own culture, its own values and codes. Patronage is of importance in particular as a means to integrate societies and give coherence to political systems. Nevertheless, it is always subject to criticism - which tends to argue that patronage amounts to corruption - and needs to be legitimized. Integration, legitimation and corruption, these are the three dimensions of patronage which the authors address in looking at examples from the early modern period to the early 20th century. This volume wants to make a contribution to a comparative history of patronage in an international perspective on the transition from pre-modern to modern societies.
