What is the relationship between liberalism, illiberalism and despotic forms of dictatorship?

In Vol. 19 of the series „Comparative Sociology” of Brill, the international academic publisher founded in 1683, Iván Szelényi and Péter Mihályi explore the relationship between liberalism, illiberalism and despotic forms of dictatorship in their article titled „The Two Forms of Modern Capitalism: Liberal and Illiberal States". The bottom line of the paper is that illiberal regimes as long as they offer a minimal legal guarantee to capitalist businesses, can accommodate a capitalist system. Under despotic-dictatorial systems this is unimaginable.
