Editorial Reviews

Papers from a March 1993 conference, including one authored by Mikhail S. Gorbachev, explore the transformations occurring in Europe, India, Australia, and Canada as federalism is forced to adapt to global economic change, ethnic and religious nationalism, human rights issues, and environmental degradation. Topics include the challenge of new social movements, Russian experiences with federalism, India's domestic and foreign policy, lessons from Canada and Quebec, and the EC as a supranational state in the making.
