Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Associative democracy holds that as many social activities as possible should be devolved to self-governing voluntary associations. Advocates tout it as an alternative to both free-market individualism and centralized state control. Scholars of the social sciences, most at the University of Amsterdam but also elsewhere in northern Europe, explore such aspects of it as problems and prospects, the faces of ecological democracy, Danish civil society, and globalization and multi-level governance in Europe. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
