Examining Argumentation in Context: Fifteen studies on strategic maneuvering contains a selection of papers on strategic maneuvering in argumentative discourse. Starting point of all of these contributions is that a satisfactory analysis and evaluation of strategic maneuvering is possible only if the argumentative discourse is first situated in the communicative and interactional context in which it occurs. While some of the contributions present general views with regard to strategic maneuvering, other contributions report on the results of empirical studies, examine strategic maneuvering in a particular legal or political context, or highlight the presentational design of strategic maneuvering. Examining Argumentation in Context therefore provides an insightful view of recent developments in the research on strategic maneuvering, which is currently prominent in the study of argumentation.

Table of Contents
“The strength of this collection is its focus on strategic maneuvering for use in argumentation analysis. Readers of this collection will learn about the evolution, complexities, extensions, and applications of this theory. [...] The late Peter Houtlosser, to whom this book is dedicated, surely would be pleased to see so many provocative essays that his work with Van Eemeren has inspired form a wide range of disciplinary interests and from many European and North American authors.”
“An excellent collection of studies in applied argumentation, “Examining Argumentation in Context” adds significantly to the ongoing and increasingly relevant stream investigating how argumentative discourse affects and is affected by the institutional fields within which it occurs. By showing how dialectical and rhetorical strategies are jointly activated in different communicative practices in order to successfully perform the arguers' intervention in contexts, this volume constitutes a stimulating introduction to a promising book series.”
