Democratic Challenges, Democratic Choices

The Erosion of Political Support in Advanced Industrial Democracies

Russell J. Dalton

Comparative Politics

Most democratic citizens today are now questioning the very pillars of representative democracy. This book uses an unprecedented array of cross-national public opinion surveys to document the erosion of political support in virtually all Western democracies. These trends are making governing more difficult, but also fueling demands for political reform that may lead to a further expansion of the democratic process and a new democratic relationship between citizens and their governments.
