A decline in religious belief, waning class values, rising postmaterialism, along with Green values, postmodernism, and feminism, indicate a profound and widespread change in the values of citizens in Western Europe. This volume, in the highly regarded and widely cited Beliefs in Government series, tracks these changes and analyses their impact on political efficacy, interest, activity, trust, voting, and involvement in new social movements
