Intermediate Organizations and Interest Representation
Political and social linkages are widely regarded as indispensable for the stability of political regimes. If such linkages deteriorate, stability can suffer. This chapter investigates some indicators of linkage health, considering first the development of organizational membership in a general sense, and then turning to the development of trade union membership, which is the most widespread traditional form of linkage. The final section deals with new social movements creating new types of linkage.
