All of these terms refer to the renewed longing for a sense of community, togetherness, and belonging that seem to have been eroded under the pressures of modern, impersonal, bureaucratic, mass society. But it was precisely the attempts to maintain or recapture the communalist community ties and values that helped give rise (see chapter 2) to corporatism in the first place. 9. Finally, and most importantly for the purposes of this book, corporatism is controversial because it serves as an alternative social science/comparative politics approach to the other great "isms" of the modern world: Marxism and liberal-pluralism.

It is obvious even from these opening comments that not only did liberal-pluralism and Marxism serve as the two major competing approaches in the social sciences for many decades, but also that these two intellectual paradigms were products of, bound up with, and a part of the Cold War, superpower rivalry of the last half-century. To these two major, more familiar approaches has now been added a third major approach: corporatism. The recent resurgence of corporatist approaches to studying comparative politics, the politics of developing nations, public policymaking in advanced industrial societies, and a variety of issues relating to social change, labor relations, social welfare policies, and other topics had their origins in the 1960s and 1970s when a number of pioneering scholars suggested that neither the liberal-pluralist nor the Marxian approaches were fully adequate to treat the new phenomena they were observing in their studies.

Corporatism thus continued to be practiced, but it was done in new areas of the world outside of Western Europe and under new guises. 4. Modern Neo-Corporatism Modern neo-corporatism is very much different from the kind of authoritarian, top-down, and statist corporatism that was characteristic of Europe in the interwar period and of many developing nations in the 1960s and 1970s. Neo-corporatism, which is often called "societal" or "open" corporatism, is characteristically present not in developing nations but in already modern, industrial, social-welfare-oriented countries.
