Demokratifabriken - EU från insidan

A book that exposes the EU from inside (Swedish)

Here Henrik Alexandersson will take you behind the scenes in the EU. Outrageous, entertaining and thought-provoking.

To expose the EU from inside - support this book project

Seven out of ten Swedes believe that the EU has too much power - or that Sweden should leave the union all together.

How did it come to this? What went wrong? What forces are really driving the EU machinery?

These are some of the questions asked in the book Demokratifabriken. Here readers also will find out what goes on behind closed doors at the EU institutions in Brussels, Strasbourg, Luxembourg and Frankfurt.

I (Henrik Alexandersson) have been writing and blogging about the EU for some ten years. And in 2009-14, I worked as a political assistant in the European Parliament. So I have seen a lot, learned a lot and had access to parts of the system that are closed to others. Some is quite funny. Some is distressing. Some is shocking. This is a book that will leave no one indifferent.

Regardless if you want the EU to work better or if you would like Sweden to leave all together - it might be a good idea to find out what is going on behind the scenes.

This book will not only expose what is going on in the EU. It will also ask the big questions about us and Europe. And my voice will not be the only one to be heard.

So...

The majority of our laws come from the EU. It's about time people get to know whats really going on. And you can help me do it, by co-founding this book.

Thank you for your support!

(The book will be published under a Creative Commons license - making it possible for people to copy it, to spread the word.)

What?

This is a book project by Henrik Alexandersson, exposing the EU from inside. (In Swedish.) If you provide the funding, I will write the book and spread the word.

Why?

Sweden is a EU Member State. Whatever you think about that, we better try to understand what is really going on. In this book you will have a look behind the scenes.

Why I need your help...

This is an opportunity for you to support an important project, informing people about the EU. The book will be published under Creative Commons, free for all to copy and share.

About the book...

This is a project for the Swedish book market. There will be a free e-book + PDF. And a soft cover book sold via a print-on-demand-publisher (or a conventional publishing house).

Distribution - free for all

The idea is to fund the production of a book that will be free for all (e-book + PDF under Creative Commons) and for sale on paper via print-on-demand. Depending on the funding there also might be an audiobook and a lecturing tour.

How the money will be used

The money will be used to buy me time to research and write the book, to make it available in electronic formats, to design a print book and to set up a print-on-demand project with a PoD-publisher. Depending on the funding there also might be an audiobook. Excess funding will be used for a Swedish lecturing tour.
