This volume deals with political speeches, particularly commemorative addresses, from the perspective of critical discourse analysis. Such addresses are characterized as representative and epideictic, as exemplified by an address by the Dutch Queen Beatrix to the Knesset during her 1995 state visit to Israel. Critical consideration is given to the role of rhetoric within political discourse analysis.
