Fears that representative democracy in western Europe is in crisis are examined on the basis of trends in mass attitudes over the past two or three decades. The evidence suggests not crisis but a changing relationship between citizens and the state. This change poses a democratictransformation in the countries of Western Europe. Series Description This set of five volumes is an exhaustive study of beliefs in government in post-war Europe. Based upon an extensive collection of survey evidence, the results challenge widely argued theories of mass opinion, and much scholarly writing about citizen attitudes towards government and politics. The series arises from a research project sponsored by the European Science Foundation Series ISBN: 0-19-961880-1

Editorial Reviews

`The lucid style of discourse is praiseworthy. This is a book which will have to be cited from now on in any debate on the issues of 'crisis of democracy', 'crisis of parties' or 'crisis of participation'. It is extremely useful because of its general argument, and for the excellent essays onparticular themes ... it provides an outstanding 'case book' of comparative empirical analysis, which will be of benefit to teachers and students of comparative methodology.'Geoffrey K. Roberts, University of Manchester, Political Studies (1997), XLV.
