Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Resulting from a project focusing on the nature of democratic representation as Europe simultaneously experiences centralization and decentralization, these seven papers draw on the examples of European several political systems and the European Union to link the usually distinct tracks in comparative politics of federalism and political representation. Papers compare unitary and federal systems; and analyze citizen representation in the EU, self- identification in multi-national states, the complex relationship between federalism and corporatism, and territorial representation and reform gridlock in German politics. Includes article abstracts. The editors are with Emory U. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
