Violence and the State by Jan Pakulski 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? by Jan Pakulski 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.

Death of Class by Jan Pakulski Death of Class, Paperback (December 1995)

Argues that the "class perspective" has become a political straightjacket, which obstructs understanding of contemporary social, cultural and political processes. This book guides the reader through the essentials of the class debate and asks whether class analysis still has validity.
