26 The theory elaborated here has a sharper focus on two dimensions of state power neglected by Mann – the international and the process of state reproduction. The theory puts particular emphasis on the relationship between the institutions of the state and functions of the state and how this interaction – the process of production and reproduction – produces a key element of state power. Although the theory breaks the state up into its constituent elements, that is, its institutions, functions, purposes and principles, its aim is to emphasise how they fit together and how this inter-linking, in its simultaneous international and domestic context, produces the state as a complex actor with multiple facets.

The purpose of this chapter is to make the case that the Soviet Union’s confrontation with the West played a central role in Soviet state power.
