 Abstract: This book looks at European societies at the end of a turbulent millennium which saw western Europe slowly rise to global domination, and then rapidly decline to its present position, one that is prosperous but behind the U.S.A. in world influence. It is the only book by a single sociologist to make a systematic comparison of virtually all west European countries in relation to Japan and the U.S.A., and across a wide range of social institutions.
