Finnish Political Science Association
Books from the Finnish Political Science Association 24

The basis for this volume is the problematization of parliamentarism related to globalization and European integration. Research in this field requires fresh new perspectives. The articles in this volume are examples of just such an endeavour. They view parliamentarism as a specific style of politics, the main characteristic of which is speaking for and against. The volume provides general discussions of the role of speech and persuasion in parliamentary politics and examines the use of the rhetorical paradigm in different historical contexts.
