The Art of the State brings together political scientists and economists to look at governing and governance in an increasingly globalized world. It explores ways in which democratic governance can survive in a globalized environment and suggests how to combat disillusionment. The Art of the State includes contributions from Ron Daniels (University of Toronto) on corporate governance, Rick Harris (Simon Fraser University) on the new economic order, Pierre Marc Johnson (Heenan-Blaikie, Montreal law firm) on international governance and Canada, Michael Keating (European University Institute) on sub-national communities, Will Kymlicka (Queen's University) on new forms of citenzenship, B. Guy Peters (University of Pittsburg) on the changing nature of power and democracy, Christopher Pollitt (Erasmus University) on new forms of public services and Ronald Watts (Queen's University) on managing interdependence in a federal state. The publication also includes an introduction by conference co-chairs and editors Thomas J. Courchene and Donald J. Savoie.
