Parlamentarismus in Deutschland von 1815 bis zur Gegenwart / Parliamentarianism in Germany from 1815 to the Present Day
Modern parliaments have existed in Germany since 1815, with the German Bundestag following a tradition that goes back at least to the revolution of 1848/49. This handbook brings together essays that, for the first time, present parliamentarism in Germany from a historical perspective across epochs.
The entire diversity of the topic is examined, from election campaigns to gender relations to the power-political role of parliaments. Written by acknowledged experts, the book offers basic knowledge and interpretations based on the current state of research. It is also a contribution to the contemporary definition of representative democracy.
