This book challenges such Eurocentric visions by retracing the evolution of modern institutions of collective decision-making in Eurasia. Breaching the divide between different area studies, the book provides nine case studies covering the area between the eastern edge of Asia and Eastern Europe, including the former Russian, Ottoman, Qing, and Japanese Empires as well as their successor states. In particular, it explores the appeals to concepts of parliamentarism, deliberative decision making, and constitutionalism; historical practices related to parliamentarism; and political mythologies across Eurasia. It focuses on the historical and "re-established" institutions of decision-making which consciously hark back to indigenous traditions and adapt them to the changing circumstances in imperial and post-imperial contexts. Thereby, the book explains how representative institutions were needed for the establishment of modernized empires or post-imperial states but at the same time offered a connection to the past"--
