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.
