About the Authors
  • This examination of the six states and two self-governing territorial, as well as national, governments reveals the variety and innovation which characterizes the government and politics of the Australian federation. Chapters by leading scholars in the field merge information and analysis for the specialist as well as the general reader. The work is an invaluable source for reference and teaching to anyone concerned with Australian politics.

    •  This is the first comprehensive comparative study of Australian State and Commonwealth governments and their politics since The Government of the Australian States edited by S. R. Davis in 1960
    • This book will be suitable for students in courses on state politics
