Centralized vs. Decentralized Rule
This edition of Bill of Rights in Action looks at problems of putting together a strong central government. The first article examines the legacy Alexander the Great, who conquered much of his known world, died suddenly, and left his successors to govern his massive empire. The second article explores the first U.S. government under the Articles of Confederation, its achievements, and ultimate failure. The last article examines the European Union and its prospects for unifying Europe.
