"Putnam's thesis, about the virtue of connectiveness, gains here much additional depth. We see it in a comparative, cross-cultural perspective, with each study illuminating all others. A masterpiece of social science."―Amitai Etzioni, author of The New Golden Rule
"A grand tour of our times―elegant, exciting and unsettling. Democracies in Flux maps the vitality of civil society in eight industrial nations. Their experiences―sometimes similar, often entirely different―add up to a vivid report on the health of democracy in a global era."―James Morone, author of The Democratic Wish and Hellfire Nation
