Keywords in Australian Politics by Rodney Smith

Book Description

Keywords in Australian Politics is much more than a dictionary. It outlines the main meanings of over one hundred words essential to understanding contemporary Australian politics. Political language is often used without explanation in the media, public debate, textbooks and lectures. Here at last is a book that provides Australians with the necessary information to use these terms with confidence in public discussion and debate, from the dinner party to the end-of-semester essay. This book defines each keyword, highlights links between different keywords, outlines the main debates concerning each keyword and indicates how they came to be part of Australian political language. Although the book is arranged alphabetically, systematic cross-referencing allows readers to follow their own trails of enquiry. This book is essential reading for everyone who wants to understand Australian political culture and ideas.

Contemporary Australian Political Party Organisation by Rodney Smith Contemporary Australian Political Party Organisation, Paperback (July 2015)

Political parties have always been fundamental to Australias representative democracy. As organisations, however, their continued centrality and longevity depend upon their ability to respond to changing political, social and technological circumstances, such as declining levels of membership and partisan affiliation, and the rise of social media.
