Book description

Towards the end of the Second World War, there were only four functioning federations in the world – the United States, Switzerland, Canada and Australia. Today, twenty-four countries in the world follow the federal form of government. Varieties of Federal Governance presents a global analytical survey of contemporary federations. The book highlights distinctive features and contemporary issues in the typology of major federal systems in terms of presidential federations (USA, Switzerland, Brazil, Russia, Pakistan), Commonwealth parliamentary federations (Canada, Australia, India, Malaysia, South Africa), Non-Commonwealth parliamentary federations in Afro-Asia (Ethiopia, Nepal), and European parliamentary federations (Germany, Belgium, Spain). The book also includes analyses of pre-federal devolutionary models in the UK and Sri Lanka, and supranational federative tendencies in the European Union. This book will serve as a useful reference book for graduate students and academic researchers.
