The Crisis of Democracy
The Crisis of Democracy: On the Governability of Democracies is a 1975 report that was written by Michel Crozier, Samuel P. Huntington, and Joji Watanuki for the Trilateral Commission. In the same year, it was republished as a book by the New York University Press (ISBN 978-0814713655).
The report observed the political state of the United States, Europe and Japan and says that in the United States the problems of governance "stem from an excess of democracy" and thus advocates "to restore the prestige and authority of central government institutions." The report serves as an important point of reference for studies focusing on the contemporary crisis of democracies.
