“Arriving at a time when both the role of domestic legislatures and the legitimacy of European integration are high on the agenda, Debating Europe in National Parliaments shows convincingly how party politics shapes domestic contestation and argumentation over the EU. This excellent study also invites us to reappraise the functions of national parliaments in EU governance.” (Professor Tapio Raunio, University of Tampere, Finland)
“This book will be of great interest to students of comparative politics, parliaments, and regional integration. The author skillfully applies a discourse theoretic approach to the dynamics of public debate in four national parliaments, with an eye toward linking the primary modes of justification with the role of parties in political contestation and polarization. Applying this approach to five important topics of European integration, he succeeds admirably. This is detailed, original empirical investigation at its best.” (Professor James Caporaso, the University of Washington, Seattle, USA)
