Violence and the State, Hardback (November 2015)
A highly original, multi-contributed interdisciplinary investigation into organised violence across a wide range of geographical and academic areas, which argues that violence cannot be completely divorced from 'traditional' political objectives.
Decline of Political Leadership in Australia?, Hardback (March 2015)
This book analyses the changing political recruitment of the Australian federal parliamentary elite. It argues that the elite's quality has been reduced to a worrisome degree, especially since the 1990s. It suggests that the declining quality of the Australian 'political class' is a major factor behind the declining public trust in politicians.
Toward Leader Democracy, Paperback (November 2013)
'Toward Leader Democracy' investigates how today's liberal democratic regimes are increasingly moving toward a pronounced focus on political leaders and their image, and explores the mechanics, evolution and implications of this phenomenon.
