Overview

This insightful book provides an original and thought-provoking analysis of the widening gap between democracy-in-principle and governance-in-practice as economic globalization transforms our world. Nowhere is the deepening dilemma more evident than in the European Union. This book examines the contemporary breakdown and transformation of the democratic welfare state in Europe and draws fascinating contrasts with North America. In a cohesive and insightful collection of essays, a group of distinguished political scientists debates the implications of these trends both for theory and for policy.

Editorial Reviews

International Affairs
This is a highly recommended book for those who are familiar with the arguments and for those who want to be informed about them.
Fritz W. Scharpf
A most informative and thought-provoking transatlantic volume on the future of democratic legitimacy above and beyond the nation state. Competing viewpoints are well represented, and all contributions face up to the severity of the challenges. Highly recommended.
