This book contributes to the literature on the change of governance in the context of its European multilevel organization and increasing penetration by scientific advice as well as media communication and unrestricted lobbyism.





Munch demonstrates that there is a change away from republican and representative features of a democracy and towards an accentuation of liberal and pluralistic feature. This results in greater volatility of political support and a trend of politics to be captured by the global diffusion of scientifically approved rationality models as well as waves of public mood and aggressive lobbyism of interests. The book provides a sociologically grounded understanding and explanation of these identified phenomena as part of a broad and deep-going change of society. It argues that the transnationalization of governance has lead to the superimposition of a new transnational field of policy-making on the old national fields and the result of this change is the disempowerment of the traditional actors of the era of corporatism and the empowerment of new actors.





This book will be of interest to scholars and graduate students from political science, sociology, law and philosophy interested in political theory, comparative politics, international relations and political communication as well as practitioners of policy-making in governments, administration parties, associations and the media.
