Myth and Reality of the Legitimacy Crisis: Explaining Trends and Cross-National Differences in Established Democracies

Is political legitimacy really in decline? The authors systematically evaluate the empirical evidence for legitimacy decline in established democracies. They evaluate the explanatory power of theories of legitimacy decline, and explore new routes for investigating and assessing political legitimacy.
