"Krizsan has written a book which is a more than welcome addition to the currently under-populated field of large scale corpus research projects grounded in Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL). Krizsan's book illustrates the gains not only of using SFL theory to make sense of corpus data but also shows how rigorous quantitative findings can be enhanced by follow up qualitative investigation."-Dr Gerard O'Grady

"[This] is a well structured and interesting book with clear innovative aspects in the field of political discourse in general and EU political discourse in particular. The results of the study---through both qualitative and quantitative analyses---contribute substantially to the understanding of how the EU as a political project is construed in practice."-Prof Kjersti Flottum

"In this volume Krizsan contrasts construals of self-inclusion in the discourse of representatives of three member states of the EU. The methodology developed provides a positive step in integrating micro and macroanalysis of textual features in the critical analysis of discourse."-Dr Tom Bartlett
