“The great challenge for a book of this kind is to maintain cohesion among a multiplicity of authors and perspectives, and in this it has been entirely successful. Its overall framework of four principles that distinguish parliamentarism is clear and convincing, and its openness to different methodological approaches enables contributors to transcend traditional disciplinary limits.” · Olivier Rozenberg, Sciences Po

“This collection offers an impressive historical and geographical sweep, covering a range of conceptual issues. The individual chapters provide both breadth and depth, and they are well situated within wider theoretical concerns.” · Alan Finlayson, University of East Anglia

Parliamentary theory, practices, discourses, and institutions constitute a distinctively European contribution to modern politics. Taking a broad historical perspective, this cross-disciplinary, innovative, and rigorous collection locates the essence of parliamentarism in four key aspects—deliberation, representation, responsibility, and sovereignty—and explores the different ways in which they have been contested, reshaped, and implemented in a series of representative national and regional case studies. As one of the first comparative studies in conceptual history, this volume focuses on debates about the nature of parliament and parliamentarism within and across different European countries, representative institutions, and genres of political discourse.

Pasi Ihalainen is Professor of Comparative European History at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland.

Thanks for sharing this awesome article. Movies that earn more than $1 billion worldwide tend to produce sequels. As such, Fast and Furious 8 was a no-brainer. Yet, the ridiculously lucrative Furious 7 ended with real closure.

When we are in a session of reading something like a book of this kind and nature of writing, it's definitely a great time for a reason that the main concept or intention of the book is well covered within. The subject areas are treated nicely and precisely by the author and hence it was a tremendous read. I do work for a resume firm online, but I still keep my urge towards good reading based on the theme of this kind. Hopefully this suggestion was made by one of my friend and I feel really thankful to him for gifting me a wonderful reading element. Hope to see many more of reviews like this and it really helps me like people to make a choice for reading.
