In this book a number of authors - historians, legal scholars, political theorists - consider the fate of national democracy in the age of globalization. In particular, the authors ask whether the order of European nation-states, with its emphasis on substantive democracy, is now, in the guise of the European Union, giving way to a more loosely constructed, often federalized system of procedural republics (partly constructed in the image of the United States).

Is the notion of a nationally-bound citizen in the process of being superceded by a cosmopolitan legal subject?
