The Tainted Source: The Undemocratic Origins of the European Idea

Copertina anteriore
Warner Books, 1998 - 402 pagine
The author of this text argues that an ideology is sweeping Europe and the world which threatens democracy and the rule of law. The post-national ideology, which posits that nation-states are no longer capable of running their own affairs in a modern, interdependent economy, is shown to confuse the constitution of a state with the power of its government, and to ignore the importance of the sense of community essential to democratic debate.
