Rethinking Federalism Studies

About the eBook

In this timely book, Carol S. Weissert proves that federalism is highly relevant to the modern world and worthy of deeper academic study. Highlighting the dynamic nature of federalism, this book focuses on linking scholarship to the policy and politics of federalism in the US and across the world.

Combining work by American federalism and comparative federalism scholars, Weissert explores how researchers from across these fields can learn from each other. Chapters analyse both traditional and newer approaches to federalism, identifying areas of success and suggestions for further study. The book focuses on the challenges facing federalism today, in particular analysing the impact of federalism on governmental responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. Other issues covered include the impact of political polarisation on federalism, intergovernmental conflict, the drive towards centralisation, multi-level governance, and public scepticism of government.

Offering up-to-date insights into the theory and practice of federalism, this book will be essential reading for scholars and students of American and comparative federalism, political science, public administration, governance, and constitutional studies.
