What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Kari Palonen is a preeminent scholar of parliamentary debates and disputations, and in this major study brings his considerable analytical and historical skills to unpack a set of highly salient practices at the heart of modern democracies. Palonen ingeniously draws together approaches from three areas: political theory, with an emphasis on dissensus and contestation; rhetorical studies that illuminate the role of debating styles in forming the regulative cultures of parliaments; and conceptual history, with its sensitivity to time as a major constraining factor in parliamentary life. The resulting confluence reinvigorates all three domains.” (Michael Freeden, Emeritus Professor of Politics, Oxford University, UK)
